>Back of the Bus


(click to enlarge)
I have been pretty busy working my ‘real’ job the past few days, so I haven’t had much time for beading, which drives me crazy…. So, today, I’d like to show you the reverse side of my blue beaded bus. This should give you an idea of how laborious bead embroidery can be. I always use the backstitch, and I stitch 3-5 seed beads at a time whenever possible. But, sometimes I can only stitch one at a time. I stopped counting the stitches…and the beads…and the hours… :0
