I guess everyone has inspired me to make a second beaded square for the Bead-It-Forward Breast Cancer Donation Project, but this will be the last one. These little squares are addicting, but I really need to work on my Chevy fire truck, among other projects… For now, I’ll show you my drawing of a Black Swallowtail butterfly. It’s very small – only 1.5″ wide. I hope I can get some detail in there somehow…
And, here are some of the beads I’ll use. They are gold, metallic blue, and black. The blue ones are size 13 charlottes, and the other beads are Japanese size 15’s.
I’m not exactly sure when I’ll start working on this, but it will probably be sometime this week. Sometimes, I like to get projects ready ahead of time. Then, I put all the supplies in an area where I see them everyday, although I might not begin the piece for days or even weeks. Does anyone else do this?? And, if you’ve been making these little squares, how many have you made so far??
