After finishing Beatrix I picked up Poppy once more and finished her after less than a week.
She was my Jan 1st last year and I put her down quite quickly to start something else, went back to her in December and put her down again to start Beatrix on Jan 1st this year.
She’s on 32 count opal Champagne from Sparklies ( the website isn’t working right now so no link this time) and I used the called for DMC and Krenick but I used beads from my stash
I have another post to do that’s long overdue now so I’ll go and write that now and get it scheduled for tomorrow

Beatrix is finished :)
The last stitch went in late last night.
I stitched her on 36 count strawflower from lakeside linens and used a silk from now Paint box threads as my main colour and for the highlights I used a needlepoint silk

A friend of mine did pattern for a magic folding Y cube and I was lucky enough to test bead it for her with a couple of other friends.
I finished mine just before lunch today.
The biggest challenge for me was having Teejay about full time for the last 10 days after his mum was taken in to hospital while they were visiting for half term.
I loved every bead of this project and I’m thinking of making one for Teejay later in the year as with his ADHD he’s a fiddler and has been fascinated with the cube part of it.
If your a fellow beader and fancy having a go at your own the pattern is for sale with the proceeds going to out local hospice so either email me or leave me yours and I’ll pass on her details

A good friend lent me her copy of Needleprints Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler and I made it my Jan1st start for the year.
I’m stitching it on 36 count Strawflower linen from Lakeside Linens using Paint Box thread silk with a little bit Needlepoint silk for highlights

On September 7 I treated myself to a class at Spellbound for a Nutcracker from their new book Festive Beading 4
My work place first thing
By lunch time I had a couple of arms
And by the end of the day I had all the limbs done
And here he is completed
I know Mozart didnt write the nutcracker but I was up in the middle of the night unable to sleep and Mozart came on the radio so I decided to call him that
