BEADED PURSE FRONT UPDATED






As a change of pace I thought I would show the progress I have made in the last 2 days on the front of the purse. It is far slower going then you would think it is. I have a large 7' island in my kitchen. Well ever since I started with the purse class well over 6-7 weeks ago my island has been covered in the works in progress. In the middle I have my violets which look pretty alone and that is the key word "alone". Now one end is covered with a large piece of thick poster board and the other end covered with a large white tray with the beads I am either using or will use eventually. The reason I can't move it until the front is finished is because I would never be able to match them up again if I put it all away. I am basically using size 11, 8 and 6 size beads with many other larger beads, leaves, etc. for ornaments. The peyote stitch keeps being added on as you branch from one side to the other. I love doing the peyote in the size 8 and 6 but the 11 are harder. Now that I am branching out it is more fun. I am limiting my time to 1 - 2 hours at the most as I think when I first started I did too much and I suffered for it with back and neck muscle pain. Beading in my lap like I do on CQ is easy and you are not leaning forward like you are here. You can't do this in your lap because of the different sizes and quantities and color of the beads. Here are some pics of what I have added since I last showed it. draft 5:47:00 PM by FredaB Delete

It's great to see the movement on this purse...your stitched lines plus the changing of the bead sizes gives the entire piece a nice flow...
