|Panel of Halloween Glasses Case|
There was an ironic moment this morning, when I stepped outside to take pictures to share with you (the lighting on the patio is so much better than the lighting in the house.) I opened the door to the patio and startled a black cat; he stared at me for a moment and then dashed off. It still makes me chuckle. Really, what are the odds of stepping outside to photograph a Halloween themed block and finding a black cat?

I LOVE the way the black and orange beaded seam looks. That being said, if I ever decide to embellish a seam with beads again, it will be a SHORT seam. I secure every bead with a single strand of floss by looping it through the bead three times. Then, I make three tiny knots on the back before moving on to the next bead. I am also alternating between a needle threaded with orange floss, and one with black floss; so, I have to be careful not to catch the thread I am not using while securing each bead. I think about 10 more beads ought to finish this seam up.

My next seam is going to be fun - if it turns out the way I see it in my head, anyway. It will be a seam treatment created by my own imagination, so I am excited to give it a try!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
