Tiny Beads Everywhere
I thought, ok I'm ready to tackle adding beads to my yarn. Love that...not so easy.
I strung the beads on yards and yards of beautiful silk thread. Carefully placed them in a bowl next to my wheel on the floor and began to treadle ever so slowly so that each bead would be exactly where I wanted it. Slowly, slowly I began to treadle and move the beads. About a yard done, looks great. Slowly, slowly I treadled. Snap, thread broke beads went flying, words loudly escaped, dogs went running.
Maybe I'll try beads another day.
