I’ve finished the binding on my Christmas tree skirt. Hubby went to bed early last night and I spent a couple of hours hand sewing.
I was quite sad when I came to the end of it. Although I had a wonderful nights sleep, perhaps this is better for the soul than a complicated cable pattern just before bed time.
And the reason I have pushed on with the sewing?
Was this – the beading. I became quite giddy with excitement as I rifled through my stash of beads.
It is lovely to play like a child again, actually I think it is better than playing like a child as these are beautiful glass beads made for adults to enjoy, not plastic beads that become dull very quickly.
I haven’t planned every stage yet, but I have settled on some beautiful Rocaille Czech gold beads with silver linings in size 7/0 as a trim all the way around the edge.
So pretty, I’m sure these are really going to shimmer and dance with the lights of the Christmas tree shining upon them.
I’m a third of the way around.
