so i have picked up a bead or two


so i had the bright idea of picking up my beads again...
and thought i would try the cubic right angle weave stitch~
grrrrr....
i found a great video on 'how to' on bead and button but i have to tell you that after hours and i do mean hours for the last two days i still can not get it to go right???? i am missing something here and i can't figure it out-maybe that tiny little step is missing in the video?? not sure-i can get the 3 bead and 2bead and the next 2 bead addition but when it comes to the next step i just can not figure out which bead to pick up?? i have watched the video a gazillion times....sigh....but i hope to keep trying
one thing i can say is my 'new glasses' are not strong enough!!
back to the eye doc....
i feel just like the mouse in the pic :D

Love the illustration of mouse and kitty...I can see my cat-kids actually doing something like this.LOVE your own catchildren...they look much loved and ready for possible mischief.
I don't do beading, but I sure appreciate the efforts of others, so I hope it works out well for you. Likewise, thank you for your thoughtful comments on my blog. They mean a great deal to me.

Tammy glad to hear you want to bead again.... You did such nice pieces before..
Maybe there is another video you could try,,,, I find they are never long enough. I have been watching the tatting videos. I want to learn that so badly but so far I only know one stitch doing needle tatting!!!! EEEK!!
So much fun eh??!!
trudge on my dear, you will get it...
