4 handed beading

Beading goes well but it takes time... I have a little helper which does not speed up the process but it is even more fun for sure. I put the needle into the fabric, he pulls through and puts the bead on and then it is my turn to with the needle to find the right place. The idea with the cd holder and double sided tape is brilliant it keeps all the beads in one place.



I run out of the 3865floss which matches the background perfectly. And actually I run out of 51 bead but I was extremely lucky because I have found some remaining from some other project so I am saved. Now I have to wait for the new dmc from casa cenina. It is already on the way should arrive tomorrow or the day after latest.

Height chart on the wall

Country Companions: Height Chart

I have finally finished the height chart and put it on the wall. The happy owner already checked how much does he need to be bigger than the reading mouse - some month but not that much!

Ready for the bling!

I have finished the stitching part, now comes the bling: all the beads, sparklies are ready to be sewn on! It was quite a speedy one: I started the last quarter 16 days ago, and now I am ready. The other 3 quarter took more than 2 years to finish...

Progess on Frosty Knotgarden

I made some nice progess on Frosty Knotgarden. The motivation is there, I kitted Summer and in the weekend I ordered the special threads for Autumn and Winter Watergarden. It will take some time to use them: I just checked my history: I ordered the kit for Frosty in 2011, started in 2013, and will finish it this year. Hopefully Watergardens will not be alone for 4 years :)

These tiny flowers are real nice (click to see them better!) but I simply hate to do the ice on them. One is still remains in the corner to be iced, but I will do that with the clouds. The clouds are quite big, takes quite long to stitch them, but I like to do them a lot. When they are ready only the beads will remain. I target end of May - we will see...
