I was hoping my ‘secret project’ would go much faster than this. It probably would if I committed to only ‘it’ in a weeks time. I just finished the second panel last night. That means I have two to go and I am halfway there. Hoping to have another one done next week, but found myself on the phone yesterday and other beadwork was added to ‘do now’ list. I should be a professional juggler LOL
In the meantime, I lent out my ‘Little Guy’ loom to my guy, Dave, and have taught him how to use it to bead on. He went to Montana recently and bought an old cowboy hat at an antique store. He wants a beaded hat band to go on it and I think he didn’t want to wait for me to do it 🙂 He is doing a freeform pattern, meaning he is designing it as he goes. I was a bit surprised at the bland colors he chose, but it isn’t mine, so who am I to say anything, not like I expected pink and red or anything either. LOL
I will also keep you updated on his progress. You think mine is slow… 😀
Today I finished the first panel of 4. In all it probably took 3-4 days to complete. Now I have to make 3 more 😉 I am hoping to have this secret project ready for reveal in 2 weeks, so bear with me as I go through the process. I promise you are all going to love the finished piece.
I opted for the taped ends on this project as it will suit me best, as you will see in the end. The panel measure 8 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ with the 9 Delica colors.
