Too hot to stitch where you are? Then go browse the collection of vintage needlepoint purse sites that the About.com guide has collected. Even if you have no intention of buying, it is fun to browse fashions of yesteryear.
Are you looking for a source for the tiny size 15 beads? & More has added photos of the colors they carry to their website. Mill Hill beads are around size 11 in most cases, to give you an idea of how much smaller size 15 beads are.
Want to make your own beads? Just cut metal purl into the custom size of your choice and attach like any bead. Mary Corbet's website shows how to use metal purls (and how to fix any problems with the fat little coils).
This morning I substituted a photo of my blooming day lilies for my own portrait on Blog. They are the only thing in CH that likes this hot and humid weather!
By the way, it looks like Blogger has fixed any problems with the Comments now. I suspect that the new Stats system they have added to blogs that use "Blogger in Draft" caused the trouble. If you blog via Blogger and use their "Blogger in Draft" system instead of the more stable standard system, check your Dashboard for the new Stats tab.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, do not worry. I often have no idea what I'm talking about either!
