So now I have a really big job to do. I got a good sized collection of beads together and I'm sorting through them tonight. I should be done in about four hours!

I Promise No Ribbons Today
I was looking at the past two weeks of posts and realized that it had gotten rather single minded on ribbons. So tonight I worked on a project with beads. A couple years ago I taught how to make beaded spiders. I had no idea how to make them so it was an interesting experience. With some trial and error I was able to make one. It is really quite easy. The problem comes with choosing the beads because the spider looks better when it is proportional. The body beads I chose were rather large, 20 mm for the back end. So the spider is to large for jewelry. The next one will be much smaller and I will make a loop to hang it from. Maybe I will see if the craft store will let me have a class. So here is the spider I made.
