Well, I managed to get another 3 hours of beading in last night, with a few cross stitches included too. I've now used two full packets of the pearls except for 5 beads, but still have another packet to go at. I hope to get some more beads on tonight, and I think that will include some other colours for a change. I'm really enjoying this. I've not added any of the large beads yet, as I don't want to get my thread caught on them, so they'll be added at the end, but I am itching to see what they look like.
