  • Where do you beaders get your patience from...

    ...for seed beads, ARRRGH!! I chopped up an old dream catcher this afternoon and literally hundreds of the things scattered all over my craft room. I can't even see those ones lost on the carpet with TWO pairs of specs on! The rest I had to dab up on a damp fingertip - they're a nightmare!

    We just love it! I do huge cross-stitches too... one of them is 100,000 stitches! Another one is 30,000 at 26 count.... no one understands it but other beaders

      A stocking on the nozzle of the hoover............................works wonders! It's a bit more difficult to extract them from cat fur after throwing said beads across the room.

          any old pair of tights will do, it was one of anthea turners ideas i think. Still a bit of a pain to pick the beads out of all the fluff though.

            A trick that i picked up when the other half is doing his airfix kits, is to have some spare bags for the vacuum cleaner, as you can be assured that he will drop the smallest possible bit from the kits, so I then put a new bag in, vacuum the floor and then cut the bag open so that he can root about in it.

              . . . . which is a brilliant idea unless you have a bagless vacuum cleaner.

                Tee hee, my bagless hoover rattles by the time I've finished the floor in my workspace!
