Beading at the Border

That beading could also be sweat beading on my brow as I struggle getting ready for camp, drawing MORE patterns and trying to purge the crap I've been collecting for years.

But this is about the beading on the Grandson's Favorite Sports Rug.

If you tap on the photo it will enlarge and is more visible as to the beading at the border.  So far have only been able to hook the black and white plus the black and green on the right side.  

My plans are to carry the black and white checkered flag evenly along the sides of the rug.  Above the black and white beading is green and black.  I plan to hook yellow next and keep the colors of the flag hooked in sequence until the black and white beading ends on the left side. That way the beading will carry the eye around the rug.  

Looking at the rug just now I think Zach's name needs to be more bold. Perhaps even larger letters and then outlined with another color. Hmmm, will chat about this with my pal Deb at Barb's this weekend. Am sure she will have great ideas for me.

I know all of us in different parts of the world have our own weather issues.  I'm sorry for you in Canada for the recent fires.  In the US we also have our California fires, earth quakes, landslides, floods, tornados, etc.   While none of those horrific weather patterns are happening here I am sick of the two weeks or so of rain.

Think positive and whatever your loss, just remember there is a new day when sun will shine again and the sweet smell of the rain when the sun shines.  Hugs to all.



  1. I've always wanted to try a beaded border. Those fires are terrible. There are a lot of people from my area who work there and travel home every few months. They have lost everything

  2. I cannot begin to imagine losing everything. My heart goes out to them.
    I think you are right about Zach's name. You (and gal pal) will get it figured out.
    Hugs :)

  3. We are blessed. Rug looks good and I agree with enlarging Zach's name a little.
