Like I said, it takes time. Today I put in six hours and only managed to do the outside yellow strip of bugle beads. Tis a lot of work. Now me eyes is tired, so I don’t know if I’ll get more work done tomorrow.
If you look back at the last post you’ll see the difference since then. It’s coming along and I’m really liking it. As I go along, I find areas that need ‘tweaking’ (so to speak), a bead needs crushed and removed, or a few need tightened. When I’ve completed the whole mandala, then I’ll go back, of course, and double check everything for accurate stitches, design, and surface.
