Finally, the Purple Cascade neck piece is done! (applause, applause)
BUT I can’t post the tutorial right now because it’s dark and dreary again this side of my world, and if I use a flash for the pics, that shade of purple turns out a blue. (Booo!) Really! It’s true! (Rotten tomatoes flying onto the stage).
Besides, my room is a wretched MESS. (Somewhere in Asia, my mom is reading this, and she’s chuckling and shaking her head at the same time). I have a good reason for this mess, I swear! The carpet guy had to remove the wet padding under my carpet and he had to pull the thing out. So now most of my clothes, shoes, and bags are piled on the workstation. I can’t put them back in until he comes back on Friday or Monday next week.
But it’s done! Done! Done! Err.. I just need to add a couple of finishing touches and I can’t do it because my beads are under all my clothes. But here is a sneak peek:
It’s made of rosettes and is hand sewn. I added a few beads at the collar, but, because of the weather, I can’t get the right lighting for me to be able to take a shot of it. The piece is soft but it keeps its form even when you move. And best of all: it can be worn in 3 ways. Hooray for versatility! I’ll get B. to take pics of me wearing it when the weather’s better. Promise!
