The deadline looms

Friday is parent teacher conference day, and the auction people want to have the class auction projects hanging up for that. So, my deadline is basically tomorrow afternoon. I teach my newbie class tomorrow night, so I won't have much time to work on it then. My goal is to drop it off when I pick up Molly. I have nearly all the beading done and I have sewn down the hanging sleeve. I haven't done the label yet, but that can wait until after the auction. It has to be the last thing because I don't want any beading threads to go though it. So, here are lots of photos!

First, some lovely embroidery by Sew~Amy (whose birthday is today!):

Then some embroidery by me:

And two photos of beading that I like:

Some beading I'm so-so about:

And one I just don't like. I'm taking it out tomorrow and doing something else. I think it looks like candy (and not in a good way):


  1. I can't wait to see this project in full view. I love all the beading and I've always loved hand embroidery. Used to do a lot of it until I got my new sewing machine. I still like to crochet some. These colors you are using are just beautiful.

  2. I love how the fabric with the beads positively glows. Just beautiful. I, too, would love to see the completed project in full view. I just want to stare for a while, take it all in...reflect!
