beads, beads and more beads...
Not much stitching has been going on since my last post, however I did decide to start beading on Sabrina...
As you can see I've got some done but still a lot to do! I'm already on my second package of those tiny little black beads and I got 4 (when the pattern calls for 3) so I hope I have enough!
I am enjoying it though, as I think I finally found my perfect beading needle! I got one I really liked a few years ago (read that as many) but it was with a class, so we only got one, and I never knew what brand or kind it was. Since then I've been on the search... I finally broke down about a month ago, and ordered 4 different types of what looked like the one I had from 123... and I found a winner!!
The one that is almost exactly like the one from many years ago, is the Bohin tapestry needle in size 28. They are very thin, so they bend easily but I love it! I will definitely be ordering more in the future!
I also have a favourite needle that I stitch with, but I've only been able to find them in Budapest, Hungary, so needless to say I've stocked up on those as well. They are the perfect length for me, and they have a small little ball on the end. I just love them and have been using them for years. I've never had one break, and they just glide through the fabric. I'll try and take a picture of one later to show you but like I said I just love them!
How about you dear readers, what are your favourite needles for stitching and beading???
