More Beading On The Blackwork Peacock Purse

I can't imagine what life would be like without stitching! It seems to be the only thing getting me through this floor installation. Scott is down to just a few rows by the wall. Because he's so close to the wall now, he can't use the super-duper, heavy-duty floor stapler. He's having to use the finishing nailer but he's having trouble getting the nails to sink into the sub-flooring. Old subflooring is hard as a rock! The nails keep folding up. I know he's doing the best he can but I'm starting to wonder if this floor will ever be done! So I focus on stitching which does help.

I did alot of beading on this yesterday:

Pams Blackwork Peacock Purse

As you can see, the tail is completely attached now. I bought some 6 MM AB Swarovski crystals to use as the "eyes" in the tail. They really add alot of sparkle!

Later today, I'll be adding my little cat to the bottom right-hand corner. I plan to add a spiderweb to the top right-hand corner but I think I'm going try something a little different than what I usually do.

I also have a gorgeous vintage rose pin which I plan to put in the top left-hand corner. I already have some buttons picked out and I bought another fan button for this.

Stop by tomorrow. I may have it completed!

Hi Pam,

The beading really helps give depth to the whole thing. It looks so nice. I am hoping to attempt something along these lines, but I need some time first. (Don't we all.) Beautiful .....
