Japanese iridescent glass seed beads, silk flowers, fresh water pearls and Swarovski crystals for the bodice.

  1. Do you do your beading etc in front of TV? If I knit in front of the TV I lose count and don’t realise things are ‘off’ for a couple of rows. Very Frustrating. T’s going to be very lovely when all done

    1. No, I don’t ever do any sewing or needlework in front of the TV because we’ve never had one until this past Christmas. And the one we have is currently used as a monitor for our media PC and Wii console. If we’re going to watch anything, we stream live and don’t have cable or satellite or anything like that. Having said that, if I’m doing something simple like smocking, my favourite way to do it is with a nice cup of tea or glass of after-dinner something, good conversation with friends and me smocking away. Very Victorian, probably, but it’s my favourite way to do needlework of any kind. But with beads… I’ll be sitting at a table – to support the weight of the dress – and to ensure that I don’t lose any. 🙂

  2. Now you are really teasing me. You have me on the edge of my seat. I can not wait to see the finished dress.
