Teal & Black Beads, Redwork


I removed the offending yellow/gold beads discussed on the last post, tried a few alternate ideas and decided to wait until more beading has been done on other blocks. I may not use those yellow/gold beads at all...

But I DID decide what to do in this teal block - Black bugle beads separated by a tiny teal sparkle of a bead. These truly are small; I had to switch from the short stout quilting needle I usually use to a long fine applique needle.

I didn't get more done because of my weekly phone call from a friend (you know who you are!), but while chatting, I worked on the embroidery on the redwork cross. It's all done and ready to be bordered and quilted.
