Again... Waiting For the Glue To Dry...

Swags are drying as fast as they can.  Tessie is very impatient... I have the feeling that she is going to jump into bed as soon as the curtains are finished. 

Heaven forbid that I would have a chance to get the cover of the box done before she does!

They don't look too good yet.  I still have to add all of the trim after the glue dries.  I hope to get that done before Tessie shoos me out to take a nap... Fingers Crossed.

I was right.  Very little of the window will be seen. 
 Whilst the glue dries, I am looking for patterns to try on Pinterest.  I cheated and took screen shots of a lot of the bracelets and then printed them out all on one sheet of paper with my greeting cards program.  Hey!  Whatever works!
I did try one bracelet.  I am not quite happy with the last row. I should have squeezed another row in before I quit.. There is a small gap.  I think that I can fix it by running another thread through the last few rows. Wish me luck.

I really just wanted to see how it worked and how many beads in one inch of the length.  I am going to do another one with delicas.  They are a different size and may take more to fill an inch.  That's the only problem I can see with this loom.  You have to know how many beads in an inch and plan accordingly.

Anyway.  The glue is almost dry.  I will be able to put on the roses and other trim in just a bit.

Back to watching the glue dry.  Oh!  The excitement!

See you tomorrow.

Hello Casey,
The curtains already look great to me. I can't wait to see them completed. Using the program for the bracelet pictures is genius!
Big hug

Giac, that's how I do a lot of mini art and some rugs too. The greeting card program is the easiest way to get the size you want and if you print them on cardstock and frame them, they turn out great.
