bead creative

Today is day 9 of AEDM.
And today I have been surrounded by beads!
This is my beading tray.  At the top right is a cuff I am beading on a loom.  At the bottom right are two more projects, the monoprint I am beading and a piece of gold and brown brocade I am beading for a journal quilt.
It is very hard to see but on the bottom left is a perspex beading tray which my hubby made for me.  He routed some slots on it so I could sort out beads easily.  Comes in handy when you spill them!
I do love beading on my work, but it is very time consuming, so I wouldn't hold my breath for the finishes of these pieces.
I did recently heavily bead a piece for a commission, here.
.This one took an enormous number of hours, but at least my friend was not in a hurry.  I was very pleased with it, but it will be a while before I repeat the effort!

Have fun creating!
