The beads are still going on...1-7

Week 1 - 2017

I showed the little fabric bits I was cutting last week.

Although I am working on a different daily project - very quick - I realised at the end of last year that I really did like stitching beads to the little fabric packets. And I had already purchased grey and brown fabrics for the project. The past 2 years I did a fabric packet of some shape. For 2015 using white fabric and 2016 using black fabric adding beads in the primary and secondary colours from the colour wheel. In between months I did other beaded projects. So, I have decided to 'complete my set' by doing the 6 main colours of the colour wheel in grey, then in brown on alternate months.

It took me some time to work out numbers, and then for grey I had planned more squares. But got the measurements a bit off when cutting. So, they are not quite square rectangular shapes. Ha! And as I had a smaller amount of the brown, they were planned to end up as fairly small rectangular fabric packets.
And so, those are my background stories.








The grey looks a bit blue with blue beads. It will be interesting to see what the other colours lend to the combination.
