Mammaw's can fix anything!

Well yesterday I really thought I could live with the top of this purse being a lil wonky....but I couldn't. So I spent 2 hours ripping out carefully the top and then adding other things to make it more correct. I am now more pleased and it has less warts to me!!! Wow who knew filling in would use sooo many beads and guess what...I am running out of the lil pearls to fill in with. I raided my stashes...even the hidden ones and nope not another lil bead like that on the place. I have the same color and finish but just a tad bigger so I am a thinkin I will have to finish with those. Right now I am trying to fill in the bare spots with what I have left in hopes that just by doing the bottom tip of this top it won't look so off.
Then the bottom part of the purse is just gonna have to be differant than the top flap...I'm kinda thinking to make it candy stripped...we shall see. Hoping you all are enjoying this beautiful weather...gosh I need to go out and weed my garden...and plant some flowers before it gets too much later in the season. Thankfully I only have to fill in pots as the rest is all coming back from last years massive planting. It's really funny to me I have flowers coming back that I bought as "annuals" again this year...and oh are they much prettier this time around. Well off I go...see ya real soon!


  1. Ooooh...ahhhhh!! Gorgeous! I used to do a lot of beading. So, I know how many beads it takes and how much time. I hate to think of all the blood I lost during my beading projects! LOL

  2. Sometimes you just have to 'rip'! Love what you're doing!! Very nice piece!

  3. Boy, that takes patience and dedication!
