I'm not really very good at beading but I like the trying part. I also like the variety of beads. I especially like the glass beads as I just bought small tubes of red, green and gold. My fingers are no longer nimble and my eyes strain to thread the needle even with the help of a magnifying light. I enjoy the slow adding, building process and here I have used a combo of turquoise and the green glass beads on hand stamped cloth. .Sometimes I think while I'm beading that I have stepped into the ancient world when someone beaded beautiful ritual robes ... my fantasy for sure!!
