Yep I got another one for you! My friend Julie @ uniquelyjuls has made her first tutorial. She makes beautiful bead embroidery but she wanted to hop on the beadweaving tutorial train. She asked if I would test it for her and she was also sweet enough to send along a kit as I did not have all the materials I needed. Here is my "Queen Anne's Lace"
Really she had me at the name. I have always loved this adorable weed and many a time in my youth I could be found picking them and running home to get out the food coloring to watch them change color. So I do think it was instant love.
I will tell you that when I test a pattern I tend to really get into all the aspects of it. It goes beyond just reviewing it. I read every word, make sure it matches the picture and that there aren't any typos. I have to tell you Julie has created a very sweet and dainty piece. You know we all need just a hint of jewelry sometimes and this is the one. I enjoyed stitching it first because I am a big fan of RAW ( right angle weave ) and I do have a love of 15's. Yes the chain is all in 15's but so utterly worth it. Her stitch paths are easy to follow. You have to pick this one for yourselves. I actually have a plan to make a couple more maybe trying pearls (yes I love me some pearls) and different color ways.
I have a couple more reviews coming your way soon. Now off to finish that awful housework!
Hugs and Blessings
