With all that weather going on outside yesterday, we stayed inside. There was no where we needed to go and even if there was, we would have waited a day. I continued working on the beaded box until I finished it. It isn’t perfect, but I’ve learned the process.
You can see the inside lid had a little ledge so it fits the box.
I have an idea for another little triangle box. I’ll be working on that soon.
After I finished the box it was still early and I still had all the beads out. I pulled out the EGA Correspondence Course, Beaded Nutcrackers, by Kathleen Rake. The subtitle for this course is “A Study in Constructing Flat Odd-Count Peyote Stitch, Demystifying Increases/Decreases on an Odd Shape.” When I signed up for this course I fully intended to stitch the four nutcrackers and send them to the teacher for evaluation. I bought all the beads in the colors the teacher had listed from a company she recommended instead of trying to use the beads I had in colors that were close. The receipt was still in the bag with the beads and instructions – February 2008. I even had the needles and thread in the package. It was all ready to start. That’s as far as I got with this project. Last night I started the first nutcracker and this is what I’ve done so far.
