Dressed for Christmas History

 

Last spring I had a great time shopping for small beads. I had an idea for a sampler that needed some sparkly fancy beads and I shopped till I dropped. When I found the green teardrop bead, I thought of making a Christmas Angel, but when I started drawing, she wanted just a full head of hair, not wings and a halo. My favorite touch: finding a way to make a bouffant hairdo.

 

I liked her so much, I started shopping for the beads to make a gent to escort her.

But life happened, so she's here on her own (no escort. Yet).

Below is a photo of the supplies for Dressed for Christmas Heart

Dressed for Christmas Heart Descriptions

 

As soon as I finished stitching this Heart, I stepped back and looked at it. It looked to me like the little Beaded Lady is ready to step through the door and into the grand hallway where there is a beautiful Christmas tree. .

 

 At its widest and longest points, the heart  is approximately 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" on an 8" x 8" square of white congress cloth. I stitched the borders and fillings in five colors of Soie d'Alger and a spool of Kreinik braid. The Kreinik braid looks black in the photo but not so. It is a dark green.

 

The Beaded Lady is constructed in pearls, seed beads,  a vintage red nailhead is the bodice and pearls her face and hands. Her skirt is a large flat emerald tear drop embellished by two sizes of seed beads.

 

The instructions are 22 pages long plus a title page and a color copy of the finished heart.

 

The instructions booklet does not include instructions for assembling the heart (I leave that job to a professional finisher).

 

 

Paper Needle Folder with Beading Needles and Thread $14.50 including shipping.

 

I thought it necessary to offer needles I know will work with the pearls I use so often, so I have made a folder with Queendom Website's Logo on the cover. It has two each #10. #12 and #15 beading needles in felt and a spool each of Nymo thread '0' and '00' included.
