This project started out as an experiment in using my felted wool. Right now it’s not so much about the wool any more. It has morphed into a project about the beads!
The bead store is always one of my favorite spots and today did not disappoint. Many of the beads that I left at home would have been perfect for this project. Too bad, so sad—I got more!
A few more bright ones, a bit more purple and blue to go into the project. And then I saw these!
Part rough, part polished, beautiful iridescence. I couldn’t resist and I think they go perfectly with the yarn and wool and shine of the other beads.
I ‘basted’ them in place and I’ll decide how to incorporate them as I go along.
This project is slowing down dramatically. Instead of just a few beads here and there, I’m adding lots and lots of beads. I wanted a quick project, but that’s just not gonna happen with this one. It got more complicated all by itself, but I’m not doing anything to prevent it. I like lots of beads and I guess I don’t mind spending the time putting them on.
It may be a while before I have anything more to tell you about this one…just one bead after another, over and over! I do so love it!
