I used a single strand of black, cotton, DMC embroidery thread, waxed, this time. It worked better than the Nymo beading thread. I stitched through each bead twice, and I stitched across each opening, diagonally. That way, these #10 seed beads ‘sit IN the mesh, instead of on top of it. These little double hearts also came from a larger design offered by the Cross-stitchers’ Club.

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!
