    1. There is no limit to what you can do with beading. I think the Beaded Fern stitch would look great for Christmas decorations.
      I am afraid I have to admit to looking up Right Angle weaving! I had no idea what it was, but after watching a YouTube video I recognise it. Beadwork and jewellery making was extremely popular some years ago in Japan.
      What are you making, a bracelet? Whatever it is, enjoy it!

    2. I have made a bracelet for my daughter on the loom and now I am just trying to learn the different processes of bead weaving ! Then last night I had a needful urge to do a 'GLAZIG' style embroidery............You know sometimes Queenie my brain is in overdrive and I just have to go with the flow ! !

    3. Isn't it wonderful to have creative juices overflowing? As I have now completed the Swedish wool embroidery collar I have time to start another project, and it might turn into three!

  3. Your samples are very nice. I think (beaded) fern stitch looks good on any fabric.

    1. I agree. It is a great stitch for crazy quilting where you mix so many types of fabric.

  4. Some beautiful variations - the brown line with the astray stitches is my favorite - I don't know where I am going to - ?

    1. Change the colour of beads and you get pink cherry blossoms, mimosa or red berries on a Christmas wreath... Anything will look good.

    1. The relly fun thing about beaded stitches is that you can play with colour contrast and add sparkle to a dull thread.Red and yellow work well together.

    1. This is an easy beaded stitch - some or the others have been a bit troublesome with tangled or knotted threads.

    1. I have too many beads, if that is possible?!, but many of them are not suited for TAST embroidery, being either too small (for bead weaving beads) or too large (for accessory making). I am however glad to be using as many as I can.

  9. Your samples are all fantastic! I love the variety of color combinations. As soon as I saw the brown with pink beads, I thought, "Oooh! Perfect for a cherry blossom tree!" Reading through the comments, I noticed that idea crossed your mind too. Thank you for the inspiration!
