My fiancé and me both went home for family Christmas one last time.  Cry He was also gone for New Years. He called me at midnight and ask me what my resolutions were.

1) Get Married (You know that thing you do after you get engaged)
2) Craft Saturday ( Get to craft every Saturday)



So the first Saturday of January rolls around and I decide to craft. Problem is I can find anything ( anything i.e towels) because we had just moved. Eventually I found some beads and some fabric.  I doodled a flower and decided to bead it.



 Ta da 1st craft Saturday accomplished and it was pratice for putting some beading on my wedding dress. I learn a lot doing this simple doodle.

1) Draw the pattern right for the real deal. The petals look wonky but that is what I drew.
2) Time. I am going to need lots of time.



 I have not always got to have craft Saturdays due to other things, but I just craft on the weekdays. I did not get to craft for almost 2 years because we lived in a 1 room apt. and there was not room. So I am busting out crafts nowdays.  I have been waiting like the new kid to post this since late December. It is still in the frame because I don't know what to do with the finished product.

since when was perfection the only way to do things?  I love to see 'wonkyness'  Its a very cute flower!  And depending where it is on the fabric,  Make a tote bag and have it in the corner Cheesy  or the center, or where ever it falls, really. even if its off center I bet it would still look good!  you could even bead more around it...  oohh the possibilities are endless!  make it a giant practice bag and make them successively beter, like a time line so you can watch your progression.... I'll stop now Cheesy

I like your flower, and it looks so happy there in its hoop!  You can just leave it in your hoop and prop it against something else lovely, like a picture of you & your guy.

Nice bead work.  Can't wait to see the dress! Wink
