Trim or not

Remember this trim I was starting?

I was doing well but the thread broke. Then I sorted it and I was doing well but the thread broke. So, I haven't touched it for a while.

Today I took it all apart. The thread was lovely and just the right colour, but not strong enough to cope with trying to line up bugle beads with their sharp edges. The choice would be - thicker thread, though I am not sure I have any in suitable colours - or double thread. And since I want to make at least 1 metre of the dutch spiral, I couldn't use double of that colour because I know I would run out.
So, I am going with a pale lavender instead, of which I have more than one little bobbin.

And so we begin again. I should have the pattern in my head now!
