BJP 2012

I've finished my February project. There was a lot of beading in this project which is just over 2" x 1". As you may recall, I am creating lace with seed beads as my challenge. I thought this one would be a good exercise in getting my rows to lay straight. For the most part it worked, but I can see a couple of areas that need tightened. A few rows of these overlapping a bit could make a really pretty edging.


I am working in single colored beads so I can focus on the pattern. Seeing some of the freeform more colorful pieces created makes me want to go wild with color and such, but I'm trying to stay focused on my goal.

It's pretty and delicate, and in one colour, shows the pattern nicely. This would make a lovely edging.

What a great job you did. The single color shows off the pattern. Very nice.
