New Beadies



I have new beads this week - felt beads with fun stitching on them, plus lampwork flowers. The felt beads are commercial - I've ordered supplies to make my own, but I purchased some base beads this weekend as a kind of a tide-me-over until I get the supplies to make my own. The stitching is done with Vikki Clayton's "Midnight Rainbow" - one of my favourite colours!

The felt beads are lovely - I have some roving stashed away to make some with the kids on a rainy day sometime :) Must try stitching on them, it's very effective.

Love the beads, all of them. I do like the thought of felt beads, but I've never seen them in jewlery that I've like. I'd rather just have a bowl full of them on my coffee table. Wait, I've got cats, make that the entertainment center where they couldn't get to them!
