Today, I happened to be in Harvard Square, so of course, I went to Beadworks. I don’t make a habit of going there, because they’re somewhat pricey. But, I wasn’t happy with the blues I chose for my love seat, and that meant that I had to look for new colors. Here are the seed beads I chose. And, they’re actually a bit more purple than this photo suggests.
When I got home, I ripped out two rows of the cushion, and started again. This is the #1 reason why you should use short pieces of thread, and work in small sections. You just never know when you might change your mind… I don’t usually have to rip out my work, but today called for extreme action. If you’ve read my post entitled ‘Fear of a Blank Canvas’, you’ll learn that it is completely healthy to start over again… In fact, I feel so much better now that I did that. Now, I’m using both opaque and transparent purple size 11 seed beads. Can you see the difference??
I also read your comments on my previous post, and Sew Miaow had suggested that Lemmy Kilmister should be sitting on this love seat. When I read that, I smiled:) Lemmy is the singer/bassist for the metal band Motörhead. I have always said that the British produce the world’s best music, and Motörhead is no exception to the rule.
So, heeere’s Lemmy…
This image is taken from the movie Down and Out with Dolls. I have never seen this movie, but I read that Lemmy plays a homeless roadie named Joe, who lives in Fauna’s closet….LOL. Anyways, I was checking out Motörhead’s website, and I noticed that they posted artwork created by some of their fans. You can find that page in their Picture Gallery. Very cool… And, coincidentally, last night, Motörhead played their last concert for the year in Munich, Germany.
Looks like Ozzy & Lemmy will have to fight over this sofa….
Who will be next??
