I spied this gorgeous panel in my local quilting shop and I just couldn't say no, so i snavelled it up and was lovingly admiring it, imagining what I could do with it when i had a brilliant brain fart .. let's bead and stitch it!! To begin with I decided to stitch around the boxes and the other pale green borders, then i realised this wouldn't be enough, so i decided it needed beads .. so then it was off to the beading shop to talk beads, what I didn't stop to realise was that I would need to COUNT everything I "needed" to bead .. 193 and counting .. WHAT WAS I THINKING!!
Will beading be enough? Will it require buttons too? When will it end? WILL it ever end? Will I end up a twitching mess drooling and babbling over beads and buttons, looking for yet another space upon which to stick another or will I end up hiding in my cupboard rocking back and forth terrified of the beads who keep calling me and taunting me, daring me to stitch them to something, anything ..
Stay tuned to see if i'll be a drooling beader or a hidden rocker ..
