On to the Beading

Last evening I put the final stitches in VCE. :) Now I get to do the beading part. I have said before that I am not overly fond of beading but I love the effect it has on the design. The actually beading part isn't so much the problem as I have a tendency to spill the beads. I HATE when I do that!

Allie came home from school with some good news yesterday. She made student of the month at her school....even only being there a month. She deserves it because she is a really good kid. She makes straight A's in all of her classes and seldom misses school. I actually have problems keeping her home when she is sick. She does get in to a little trouble sometimes in class for talking but that is because she always finishes her work before class is over. Congratulations to you, Allie!

I want to thank everyone for their comments on Megan's rolling over. Later when Daddy got home she had to show off by rolling from her back to her tummy and then rolled from her tummy to her back. :) It is amazing how quickly she mastered that skill because yesterday she was ALL over the floor. Her true age is 7 months but her preemie age is 5 months and 1 week so she is actually on target for rolling. When they are born early you have to subtract how premature she was from her real age to get an idea if they are delayed or not. Sometimes it gets confusing and I have been down this road before.

I am off to start the beading on VCE. Hopefully in the next day or two I will have a happy dance to show you. :)

Have a great day!!

Congratulations to Allie! That's great.

You need to get a "Tacky Bob" for your beading. It's a little sticky board in a box that keeps the beads contained.

I think you could probably make your own with a little double sided tape.

Wow!! I can't believe how fast you stitch! She looks wonderful. I would love to try her.

The other commenter is right. You need a Tacky Bob! Makes beading MUCH easier!

Way to go Allie! And VCE looks great! How do you do beading on cross stitch? Do you just tie off in the back?

congrats to your daughter. I love adding beads and here is a great tool for beading. I won't bead anymore without it. go 3/4 of the way down the page and it is called a Tacky B.O.B. Best invention out there.
