Beading My Leafy Thing



Well now it is finished..My Leafy Thing. I love it I feel I have given birth in a kind of a way. Now I wondered what to do with it when it was finished, well it has been suggested I do a very fancey thing with an embroidery hoop. I am going to give it a try.. I will keep you updated as to how it goes.

Oh, it's lovely! Not that the snakey thing isnt - but I love pomengranites!

And the shading on the leaf is just great!

I'm not a beader at all - but I love buy trims with beads (especially the vintage ones) and sewing them on my clothes.

Do you know Paula Hewitt's blog?

Your beading is lovely Patricia. Do you use a backing on your fabric of just use the hoop to stop it from stretching?
