In progress: Bead-net dress

Looks like this year is getting off to a good start, except I missed a blog post last month. Oh, and I didn’t brew a beer, but the kegs were still occupied with heavenly liquid so I really couldn’t. Never fear- I be doubling up this month on beer and blog.

I assure you, I have been busy with projects and been struggling to finish this one all winter. While in Boston last September, I was inspired by a trip to the MFA (Museum of Fine Arts) to make a bead-net dress I saw in the Egyptian exhibit. I’m replacing the ancient faience beads with Czech seed, twisted bugle, and fringe beads. The belt is entirely embroidered with bugle beads. This is a huge project. How am I not going crazy? Buffy the Vampire Slayer is taking my mind of the tedium. I will post another photo when it’s all done.

In other news, I got an iPhone so I can take photos and blog from my phone!! I used to hate them, because Morgan would pay more attention to hers than to me. Now we can send messages to each other from three feet away and play Scrabble without having to get out the board.
