Do you hesitate about using beads in your needlepoint because you are worried they might look a bit too bare?
I know I do.
There’s a great way to solve this problem, put your bead over a stitch. This doesseveral great things:
- it covers the canvas
- it makes the area look fancier
- it holds the bead straighter
Mary Corbet has a wonderful post about how to do this.
