  1. Thanks. As I said, I am just fascinated by your work, it is making me want to take up a needle. I am interested in one of your tutorials, too, but the timing wasn’t right for me. I’m hoping you’ll run it again later on this year.


  2. Sharon,

    Although I am a beader, not a stitcher, I am finding your blog simply fascinating. The pictures of your work are inspirational. A question about this stitch: do you add the beads as you go, or do you make the stitches and then come back and add the beads?
