I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

PJ, I went back and looked at the past galleries again. I love your use of seed beads! Do you do them all by hand or is there a way to machine it? I was trying to think of a way to do it by machine, like if I put one on my needle and manually turned the hand wheel to put on a bunch. Faster maybe? Or not so good? I was hoping for your knowledge on it.

Hi - I do love to use seed beads! They are all done by hand sitting in front of the tv watching a good movie Wink. Once you get the hang of it it goes pretty fast. I put them on before adding the back so that way the underside can be a "little" messy!

I don't think the machine would work..... might sew over your finger a few times with trying to line up the tiny beads... I sew over my finger enough without trying that! LOL!

Oh dear! I've only sewn into my finger once. It was my thumb. It narrowly missed the nail. Ow.

Thanks for the advice. I was trying to think of a way to do a huge cluster of them all at once but I guess if there is a trick, that isn't it. lol!

What if you did a sort of couching techinique and strung the beads on a thread and then machine stitched over the thread, between each bead?

Do you have a link to a tutorial on this technique? Or a video?
