I thought chain stitch then beads was difficult but tried sequins this week and they are difficult probably because they are so small, then just as I thought I had the hang of it I decided to try the next stage advanced tambour, working on a thick fabric, felt!. Well lets just say the images say it all. Back to the drawing board.

New addition to Dad's tie. I have used a different part of the design, but kept with the gold theme although it has no gold beading. I've received excellent feedback, so much in fact that I have bought a few ties/ cummerbunds and bow ties to start embroidering and selling.

why have I left posting a comment this long? is it due to my busy life and working schedule or just because I m not sure if anyone really views my blog or really has any interest in it. But I've finally reclaimed my confidence and realized no one will know leave comments or follow me if I don't blog regularly. So! here it is 2014 I'm going to blog at least once a week, sometimes just pictures of my work or other peoples work I am inspired by, others posts will be comments and my up to date technical skills with tambour beading.
