this has been the most popular of my pattern designs. I have to say I prefer the back ground worked in white, but was doing a test run of the pattern using these colours.
If you go to Felinda Bullock's album in the yahoo group 4theluvofbeads,
you can see her version of this - it looks great - a lot better than my own. I still haven't finished this one. It needs the two metal bars to cap the ends and beads to finish out the length. I was so dissapointed with the way the colours turned out on this one I haven't felt real inclined to do anything else with it yet. I need to re-work it. I have seen this done with chalk white and holly green -and it works really well.
