It’s All a Mystery!

Sometimes, it’s all a mystery why I do what I do? I make beading plans, but then get busy with other projects.

Let’s start talking about it! I spotted a glass bottle, that I had saved because I liked the shape. Next, I decided that it should be covered in fabric. So, it’s all a mystery, why this project started the ideas flowing? But what about beads?

First, patch the bottle with scraps of cotton quilt batting. Use both straight and running stitches.

Then, cover with both fabrics, and text, using the same stitches.

Fabric cover finished, then the next step is more stitch (fits right in with my Stitch Meditations). Using both straight, and a curved needle (for the deeper curves).

Lovely to stitch!

Now where am I going with this? More stitch, and then beads! What do you think about all of the lovely beads, that I purchased at BeadFX today? I won’t use them all, but I needed a good selection. That will certainly get the juices flowing! Leftover beads, will go into the stash.

I’ve had this t-shirt for a couple of years, but never wore it. It had a hole in the sleeve. So, I finally repaired it with a distorted blanket stitch. I had all sorts of ideas on how to repair it, but then saw a video, and the rest is history!

It’s all a mystery, why you would be interested in this story, but I thought that you might like to see my process. I start at A, then end at Z, but the middle letters are often all mixed up. That’s just the way I roll!
