Yesterday was a marathon of sorts for me. I decided that I was very close to finishing the beading on my palm frond project and that I was going to GET IT DONE! It was a slow and steady kind of race as I also watched football and hockey on TV, had dinner, took a walk…that kind of stuff.
Here’s where I started…
And here’s what the finished beading looks like:
I have a plan to add a border of bright colored fabric and perhaps some beaded fringe. Not too sure of that…it may be better to have all the beads contained within the border.
Technical considerations–the main part is firm, with my favorite Sew Lazy Stiff Stuff interfacing. The border won’t need the extra support of the interfacing, but probaby will sag with the weight of the piece without it. So I have to figure out how best to securely attach it and quilt it. Since I didn’t figure out that I would be adding this border before I started, there was no plan in place. I’ll be winging it, but that’s how I usually work!!
What’s life without a challenge?
