K-2 with beads

We arrived home yesterday and I'm still trying to get caught up with email and all that stuff that is so easily abandoned while on vacation!

Here is one thing I did on those rainy days last week and in the evenings. I put seed beads in every spot of the leopard-like fabric in Kaleidoscope-2. It was just enough to give this wall hanging some zip. I also added to the title, so it is now K-2 Piping and Beads. You can see a full photo on this post, but it doesn't have the seed beads.

I'm adding beads to K-3 also, but in a totally different arrangement. I'll post a photo when finished.

Beading is surprisingly very relaxing!

I have been collecting thrift shop beads lately so I suspect there will be some beads appearing on something soon.
Yours is beautiful.

I like the look of beads on a quilt but don't have much patience doing it. I started beading one about 15 years ago. Maybe I need to pull it out and work on it. Yours looks great, just a touch of sparkle.

The beads really add a zing to the top, don't they? Very nice! I've never beaded, but I'm in a constant quest for handwork. Sarah Ann Smith has a new book out with a beaded pomegranate on the cover, and I'm tempted...I think you're inspiring me!
