Hi everyone, and welcome to one of the hardest things I have ever done. I think it is a good thing that I am stubborn sometimes, because this was a nightmare. I have never just about driven myself insane before, but this project just about did it.
I started with a Twiddleybitz shadow box, and built my project up from there. I have also used Twiddleybitz mini houses, mini house windows and doors,
swirls, autumn leaves, and floral border on the balloon. The balloon is
a large bauble I purchased at Christmas time, then I covered with
tissue and lace, and then beaded a net over the whole thing. Actually I
beaded it four times, I just kept making mistakes with the quantity
of beads to thread on, and holding and working on 12 strings at any one time.
