Desert Raindrops -- BFAC Project

Here's my project for next year's Layne's Legacy -- Beading for a Cure auctions. I didn't add any beads to the kit this year, just a Muscovite cabochon that someone had sent to me as part of a birthday package, some coppery chain, and the supplies necessary for bead embroidery.

It's hard to tell in this picture, but included in the kit was a tube of those new-ish peanut beads. They were a challenge to figure out how to use, but I actually really like how they look laid out in a line for embroidery, so I might have to buy more for further experimentation.


  1. I think it looks great. I had trouble with those peanuts too. I wound up hiding them as the color wasn't what I liked. Got to get to the postie to send you that thingie...

  2. Ha ha, a friend and I were actually discussing how to use the peanuts and since your project was one of the only ones that had photos posted at the time, we were combing over it trying to see how you used them!

    I agree about the color, it was too blue next to the turquoise. I wish they were the same bronze as the bugles, that would have looked awesome.
