Never say never!!


Foolish me....I said I'd NEVER to it again....but I did! Yup, I said I never wanted to see another sequin again, but here I am knee deep in sequins...again! When will I learn? Heehee.

Those of you who have been following my little blog for a while may remember my moaning about stitching sequins last year when I made some Christmas stockings for my daughter and her college room-mates. The pictures of the stockings can be found here if you want to see them. Anyway, with some new family members I decided to make some  stockings for my new niece and nephews. 

So there I am, standing in the store trying to decide which kits to buy and the little voice in my head is reminding me about how much agony I went though with those tiny beading needles piercing my finger every time I added sequins and beads....ah, if only I had listened. 

So with an already slightly raw and painful finger, here's where the first stocking is at...



...with plenty more sequins to attach! I can tell that I'll soon be on a hunt for a thimble! :)

Until next time...happy stitching!
