I've got another bug!!!!

This is my newest bug....the beading kind!!! This is going to be a purse for my 3 year old grand daughter. She is in a wedding this summer and our Rieley is a girlie girl! I am hoping her mommy will put this up for her so she can have it when she gets older to remember me by. This was the fun I need to fill it all in. This is my first big girl project so I hope later I can look back and see it and laugh and point and say...."Oh I was so new back then" and you my friends can say you knew me back when!!!! I will now give you a short intermission to laugh amongst yourselves......ok enough....your getting carried away!
I am honestly proud of this and love it warts and all...I honestly thought I would get so frustrated with the thread tangling...beads not acting right...(lil buggers some times have a mind of their own) that I would have given up on the whole beading thing by me I have a drawer full of adventures that didn't go right that have been put on hold. I think often that Rieley has a longer attention span than her Mammaw...but I'm still plugging along and loving it more and more. I just really hope it's like anything...the more I do it the better I will get. (or at least be able to make those lil beads listen more often) Hope you all are having a great day...more pictures to come as I roll along with this.


  1. I DON'T think anyone is going to laugh!! This is surely a beautiful beaded piece. And yes, I think if you continue to bead embroider, you will definitely look back and think its novice work, because if you are this good now, look out!

  2. you already know what i think, but i'll tell you again...i think it's just precious! such a gift to receive as a little girl, and it most certaily will become a keepsake. you're doing a marvelous job!

  3. Hi Sis, very beautiful Honey! I really love this and you're doing a fantastic job on it! Very, very pretty! Hey...I knew you I know that lil Rieley will look so precious carrying this in the wedding! Plus, I'm sure that you're daughter-n-law will put this away as the keepsake that it is.
    Now what I want to know is what you're going to make for all your other grand daughters??? (inquiring minds want to know lol)
    But in all honesty Sweetie, I love this, you're doing a incredible job and I know that it'll be loved in the years to come!
    Hugs and much love...

  4. thank you all for such lovely comments! and i will have you know miss bobbi...this is alllll your fault!!! i have no idea how to top this for the other 3 grandgirls!!! lol

  5. Ahhh you know how proud I am of you. This is beautiful.

  6. It is beautiful already! Riley is one lucky little girl, and I am sure she will treasure this always!
