Love Bears... ALL

You've read it before.  A FUN foot to have, and to use!  PLAY.  
I cannot say it any plainer.
Because I believe in repetition... this is the width and length setting for attaching this RAZZLE DAZZLE thread.
I painted cheesecloth awhile back.  So I found it  (Yay) as well as the pom poms and the fused fabric flowers...

So this stash of cheesecloth was painted, using Lumiere paints.  I (of course) added glitter.  Some of you asked me about the glitter product I use.  I bought mine at the local Bernina store, or you can get it at the Quilt-A-Way, both in Great Falls.  However if you search for 'art glitter' on the internet, I am sure you can find sources through Amazon or other craft supply outlets.  I have not seen it, nor do I think they carry it in our Michaels or JoAnn Fabric stores.

As to the glue, my local quilt stores carry it, too.  It's a top quality glue product, one with a very fine tip, that I love using.  All I did was just dab a bit on the pom pom...
Sometimes the paint was heavily applied, and it 'stuck' to the plastic sheeting I dried it on.  COOL effect eh?!
Found this cool stash of linen-like ribbon.  LOVE! (Yes it is!) Oh how I love being a pack rat when you can start uncovering the treasures in the bottles, boxes, and jars!

 Yes, I decided to add more!  Bathing Beauty Beads! Yes, I start without a foot... use a polyester thread, and a sharp 90/14 needle.  You can read more about beading by machine in my post, by clicking here.  I've posted all my best tips and hints there.
 And I am thrilled with the look of the beads.  They make my heart sing.  Wild Thing!  (Go ahead--sing it with me!)

Love bears all things.
1 Cor 13:7 says: Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
ALL things.
It's not just for weddings.
It's for each and every day...
with everyone.

I do love it! I should try your method of beading, I always do it by hand but the machine might speed things up a lot! Thanks for sharing..

"Wild Thing", yes! Luv the beads. I also stash all kinds of things away and it is a joy to rediscover them and begin to play. There is a song we know in Canada called "Something to sing about..." Your blog makes me sing, wildly! LOL

interesting technique, to sew beads with the machine. I think I should try it.
