281  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Peacock Tapestry by Teresa Wentzler on: October 12, 2004 01:11:29 AM

No matter what I do I usually end up getting beads everywhere, lol. I also usually have to buy more threads, particularly metallic ones.

There are two ways you can attach the bead. You use a single thread. Bring your needle through as though you were going to do a half stitch but before you complete the stitch you attach the bead. This means the bead is sitting on a slant which can look nice. If you want it more secure you come back through again as though you are finishing a cross stitch. Bring the thread back through the bead and then come back down to finish the cross stitch. This makes the bead straight whcih is just as nice. I would recommend that unless the chart tells you to do so you do it one way or the other.

I hope this sounds okay and good luck.

You could use one as a project book. Listing your ideas for future projects and sticking in pictures that you might use for them. Or you could use one almost like a resume of all your projects.

I love them. My favourite is the one with the fish and the cats too.

I haven't done this one but am working on another design of hers, "The Castle". I'm sorry I don't really have any tips for you. I always leave beading until the end, I find that works for me. With metallic thread it tends to fray very easily. I would recommend that you don't wait until it gets really bad until changing the thread. I also tend to leave this to near the end too.

Hope it helps. Good luck with the design.
