This is how it started....
...lots of cutting and bonding......
.......and choosing of threads and beads.
The final stage is hand-stitching and beading.....which I'm loving doing.
I've decided to join in with Jude Hill's Magic Feather Project (see link in side bar).... if you visit her blog you'll see she's kindly giving free tutorials and lots of information regarding the project.
My first attempt was a bit too large and clumsy (I'm not good with satin stitch :-/ )
So I had another go and maybe this one will be sent to Jude...along with a couple of others hopefully.
She's aiming for 1000!! If you visit her blog you'll see the 143 she's already received. I think there's a Flickr group too (and Facebook).
And finally.......a lesson in how to relax from The Grand Master. He has it off to a fine art.......
Just wish I had his gift :-)
