Just a little diversion!

I made two of these table covers for my daughter-in-law to use when she has parties. The first party will be my granddaughters 7th birthday at the end of April. I didn't have any kind of pattern so I had to design it as I went. Five rows of ruffles around a 6 foot table was quite a lot of fabric to deal with. They turned out pretty good. However, I am ready to get back to beading, though.

Spiral Fun

Spirals everywhere! This spiral rope uses purple 4 x 4 cubes, size 6 lavender core beads and size 11 teal accent seed beads to demonstrate the colors in the GMS Fungi Stasin for Candida Albicans, Candida Albicans is a fungal infection caused by yeast.  The colors are so pretty together.

I love love the spiral rope!

                                                  This my my HP Blue for Helicobacter.

I just love love the spiral rope. This one is made using blue 4 X 4 cubes and size 11 green seed beads with size 6 white core seed beads. It demonstrates the colors from the HP Blue stains very well.  Helicobacter is bacterium that is the major cause of peptic ulcers.
