Stitching this project has definitely been a love/hate affair. I couldn’t wait to start the beading but once I got there, ugh, what a tedious job. I wasn’t sure if I liked the beading up close. Now that I see it all done, I remember what drew me to this project in the first place…all the sparkle! If I were to re-do this, I would not use the strawberry button. It seems almost country compared to all the sparkle of the rest of the project. Oh well, happy to be done. Now I think I will make up a few quick Valentines for the teachers while I wait for the hand dyed fabric I ordered from Stoney Creek to start my lighthouse.
