Border of Sampler Mystery III Part I
I have just finished some beading of Chatelaine's Sampler Mystery III. This border is not the easiest border to do. First of all it is huge. The Q-snaps that you are seeing is the 17 x 11 inchers with several sets of extenders put in. I had to take clamps from my 8 inch Q-snaps to secure the fabric. The border for this project is 19.1 x 10 inches. I like to bead as I go along otherwise I growing increasingly more insane. Due to the size of the project I am working upside down. The border you see in picture is actually the top and left portions. I also had to get a beading tray. I am proud of my 93 cent beading tray. I just dump out small quantities of beads and hope I don't knock the tray table over. I hope finish this border in time to work on Olde World Map. I promised myself that I would finish stitching the top half this month but I don't think that is going to happen.
