Lucy's birthday present

Waaay back in March when I posted my TUSAL pic I said that I'd added lots of black from a project I couldn't share until the end of August well this is said project :)

As soon as I saw this in the October 2016 issue of the Beadworkers Guild Journal I knew I had to make it for Lucy.
The boo panel was an extra downloadable one from the members area of their website.

For some reason the only way I could put them together was in this order otherwise the pattern across the top of the panels wouldn't work :(

And here it is all assembled.
I had the perfect colour of bauble for it in my bauble stash (see Lucy there's a reason I'm a bauble hoarder :p )

It took a few months and several visits to bead shops/ fairs to get the right orange's for the dangles.
It seems that orange isn't a popular colour in beads but I'm really happy with the end result and Lucy loves it

That is quite spooktakular (pun intended). That really is quite amazing. You're pretty patient to make sure you've got just the right beads and baubles. I'd love to have something like this for my house during October. Andrea
