So, the beads.
Here are a few of the trials for attaching and embellishing the flower motifs on the sleeve hems.
And the one I settled on.
One sleeve done.
All of the first four attempts were done on a scrap motif... and of course I unpicked and started again each time.
So, when it came to having a think about the scattered embellishments on the garment, I got wise and decided to just poke some bead needles into the stacks, see what they looked like and so on. It was a lot easier to change! and this is what I think I will settle on.
Sitting beading and listening to the tennis...not on the telly, I wouldn't get anything done!
