Look at the difference on
Crazy for Crazy
and this week
There is a pile of purple beads in the piece in the middle.
There is some metallic thread on the lace flower
There is a 'worm' of kumihimo braid on the circle of visible mending
The Kumihimo braid was made on a foam disc with 8 strands of variegated perle, (that is the first tail that comes off the disc, for the second part, in the working, I have added another 8 threads to make it a thicker 16-thread braid to be used on another project.)
Next week I will be putting on a bias tape edge around the octagon.
