I started a new project from a pattern by Cynthia Rutlege in April BEAD & Button. She suggests to put the peyote on a paper foundation. GENIUS! It keeps it from flopping around and makes it ever so much easier to keep the working side aligned.
Beginnings are so exciting. There's the rush from the retail therapy to gather the bits not in the stash. All perfect, no mistakes yet (been there and done that on the back side of the work already). Satisfying brainwork to puzzle through the construction. All good.
