There will be a family wedding this summer. Older daughter is the bride and younger daughter is a bridesmaid. We found the bridesmaid dress. It has a beautiful hand beaded, flowing design all over it.
But there is a problem - I counted 71 places where the beads have come off.
The bridesmaid pointed out the problem to the cashier and got a further discount on the price then confidently said her mother could fix it.
I looked at the little pack of extra beads attached to the dress's tag.
Hmmm, not enough for the repairs.
There are 4 different beads in the mix.
I went into my bead stash. No matches.
I didn't realise my bead stash was so inadequate.
I spied this beaded place mat under a plant pot and found 2 of the beads in it. The dress has priority. The place mat will just be a little smaller when I have finished.
Oh dear, now I have to go to a bead store to find the 2 missing beads.
The things I will do for my children!
