Gearing Up

I'm planning on making a 5" x 7" piece with the theme "Winter Enchantment" as part of the blogging for beaders program.  Although I haven't received my order from them yet, I'm starting to collect a flurry of white beads from my stash.  Poking around to see what I can find is always fun - there's always a surprise or two of things I come across that I had completely forgotten about!  For example, I came across a couple packages of button forms that I bought ages ago.  

With the white beads I had already put on my work table, I stitched these up in less than an hour. 

Looks like in insect to me!

So Fun to do!  But also a real lesson in editing -- not too many beads can fit on a 7/8" button top.  I have one more form (they came in a package of 3  ~ Imagine that, my favorite number), so I'll do one more all white  for my Winter Enchantment piece.  I've got another package of 3/4" ones, but I'm going to set those aside for something else - maybe on a BJP piece, not sure.   Gee, or maybe I'll end up forgetting about them again and stumble across them months from now!  Wouldn't surprise me......
