I found a little frame/hoop for my beaded butterfly. I added some Elmer’s Glue-all between the inner and outer hoop and trimmed away the excess windowscreen from the back. Now if I can just find the roll of ribbon I bought to tie on a bow, it’ll be ready for gifting. I think I’ll add a small suction cup hanger, too.
Here’re the results of a recent experiment. I got a roll of fiberglass windowscreen at Lowes Home Improvement for about $5.00. I did some “beadpoint” using glass seed beads, Nymo beading thread, and a graph I enlarged from the Cross-Stitchers Club. I’m pretty pleased with the results, but it was really hard to photograph. The beads are very reflective.
I’d planned to put the piece in a tinier hoop and fix it as a suncatcher. Unfortunately, you can see the stitching when the light hits it a certain way. I am developing Plan B!
