Finish line in sight……kinda………

This story continues and is winding down……..well, sorta. Begun here, the border is stitched………………IMG_0656  and provides a “comfortable” finish for all of that center busy-ness, hmmmm?? IMG_0659 My handy little Kelly Cline palm ruler makes these types of borders so quick and easy! IMG_0660   The edge finish is prepped and in progress………IMG_0661  IMG_0662   Yup, having a go at Bethanne Nemesh’s  beaded detail. This may just take a bit of time…..especially with a slightly busy schedule this week. Summer is here and VBS/Vacation Bible School is in full swing. The time slot is the evenings beginning with a light supper for the kiddos at 5:30pm. Can’t get their attention if their tummies are empty!!! Til next time…………

    Ooh those beads will make a unique edge! VBS Starts here next week, though I am not yet helping again. I think by next year I will be looking forward to it. (Too many years with 8 weeks of camp–I’m still all camped out!)

    The beading edge is definitely different. i had a look at Bethanne’s book, it looks interesting. The beading is perfect for your vintage pieces. How many have you made now?

    I really like your work, and that beaded detail looks like a headache, but worth it in the end!

      I’m finding that some “tedious” is appealing and some isn’t. Micro-stippling definitely is appealing to me but not sure yet about this process! lol! The beads might be a titch too large but they’re what I had.
