Who knew there's such a thing as 'unbeading'? Well, this gal sure knows that even in bead embroidery there are times things just don't look right! Although, it's a lot easier to "unbead" then to be painting with paints...how the heck do you "unpaint"?!
So this is my little (hmmmmmm) bird when I picked it up today to bead, I didn't like the way the beads were laying....so, what's a gal to do but "unbead".
So out came my little seam ripper and beads were removed...LOTS of beads...
And this is what I beaded this afternoon...I like the flow of the beads much better! I still might remove some of the white beads on his 'bottom' but the drawing did show white there....hmmmmmm
This isn't the first bead embroidery project that I've removed beads on. You just kinda have to go with the flow and see what you like...I actually was debating starting totally over on this piece! Reason being.....I was mixing both 11 & 15 seed and Delica beads and wasn't sue the look was what I wanted. But thanks to my 'mentor', the fab Mary Stori!, she encouraged me to not remove the beads! Whew! Especially since I had to remove so many to get this far today! Thanks, Mary!
Bob and I had a great breakfast out this a.m. We always get the 'grandma's special' at Cracker Barrel which has their famous pecan pancakes! And I have leftovers for breakfast tomorrow! Actually, we haven't had breakfast out in 2 years so it was a nice change! Another beautiful day today...temp is 80 right now and the air is on!
