I've started working through my list of items I want to complete this year. This self imposed list is basically titled..."Things I've always wanted to do, gathered the stuff to do, but not done yet!" First on the list is the beaded egg.
At first glance in the magazine I thought..."I have to make on of those!" I just never got around to it. So while I was crocheting on the afghan during vacation I thought about it and decided on the colors. After putting the afghan away, I started on it. It was a fairly easy beaded project once I picked up the rhythm. The pattern is from the April 2004 issue of Bead & Button and really, they did a great job with the diagrams showing you how to weave this! I worked the main portion of the beading on a Sunday, and finished it on Wednesday, so it really was a quick project. (The egg was painted Monday and sealed on Wednesday morning.) I don't know why I thought this was going to take much longer!! The only thing left to do is to buy the stand for it as it's current resting place is a crystal bud vase. lol
