Thanks...it was driving me crazy trying to figure out--ha ha I thought maybe it looped around the boob to hold it up--duh--can you tell I have NO experience with babies? Cheesy

HA!! I thought it was used to remind you to feed your baby - like you'd slide a bead over every time you fed the baby or something. It's clear I also have NO experience with babies Smiley.

LOL you guys!
When you nurse you will know which boobeh is empty and which is full, believe me! Your shirt will be totally lopsided and you're lucky if the full one doesn't leak all over you. I generally nursed on both sides each time, some women use a marker to indicate which side they started on so they can start on the other side next time for balance.
If you ever want a mini-lesson on the secrets of giving birth and the strangeness of a brand new human just let me know!

This is a sample I made for work using Pom-Pom yarn and smooth worsted weight yarn:



This is the back:


And this is an example of using the Pom-Pom yarn to join motifs together:

lol at the breastfeeding comments XD

I have been working on some beading stuff which is new to me. I got a small tin of glass beads from my grandmother when she died last year so I've been playing with them. The only problem is that they are so small that regular sewing needles are too big for them. There were smaller needles in the tin with the beads and the beads can slide over them, but the eye of the needle is so small that I cannot thread it. Even the threaders are too big for them! So I have been putting the beads on the thread with my fingers and then threading a regular needle and stitching them down after I string some. It's slow going this way but I don't know how else to get around the small size.

Headed off to FL on Saturday (woot woot) and decided to only pack one project for whole 1.5 months. So it is looking like you all are going to be seeing a few knit garlic.  Roll Eyes  Unless I change my mind of course.

Get one of those magnifiers that hang around your neck, with a light built in. They are about $9.00. I got Mom one. She takes it everywhere!
  Also, use beeswax ($3.00) and then trim your thread with sharp scissors. It will also help thread the beading needles, besides strengthening the thread.
  As for me; I have just updated my original list on page 6. The rocks are cleared out of the veggie bed, and some seeds are sown! And, last week I finished stitching a velvet bag with gold embroidery. I took enough photos to write a tutorial on transfer techniques on velvet.  Photos coming, but I'm headed back to the yard right now!

vamped--use a beading needle...it opens up in the center, stick in your thread, and then bead...I use it for seed beads...it also has points to be able to sew...and they are cheap!
