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).

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.
