>Lighting up a Felt Marquee

The past week was super busy for me! Believe it or not, I actually spent 4 long days working my regular job as a stagehand setting up the Radio City Christmas Spectacular here in Boston. All the while, I wished I was at my studio working on my beaded Radio City Music Hall painting

In the little free time I had, I did manage to stitch a few beads down to my felt marquee. I am working on filling in the red ‘lights’ behind the beaded Radio City words. I am using only size 15 glass seed beads and hex cuts for this. It’s not exactly easy to bead around the words written in cursive writing.. Sometimes, I can only stitch one bead at a time..

Even though only a small portion of the red is complete, I can tell this piece will be well lit – just like a real New York City street corner!😀
