New Paisley for January CQJP



I took off the old paisley and redid it... It is basically the same design only this time:

1. I did it on organza over interfacing rather than felt over interfacing
2. I used size 15 beads rather than 11s
3. I used fewer color changes
4. I made it smaller in size

I also added some more buttons and bling here and there.  Shirlee Fassell sent me some fantastic sequins and I will start adding them to paisleys and elsewhere.  Here is the before and after.
We are adding more help with mother's care so I am mostly sitting near her to fetch liquids, etc.  As I was getting ready to leave today she beckons me close and said...  "Your hair is messy!"

Your new paisley is beautiful! Size 15 beads are tiny to work with but the result is wonderful.

Happy Valentine's Day week ~ FlowerLady

So glad you replaced the paisley as the other one just seemed out of place. The orientation of the new one is much better as well!

Beautiful work as always!

Ongoing prayers for you and your mother.

I like the new paisley much more because it doesn't seem so busy. Love it. Your Mom's hair comment reminds me of a British comedy program called Keeping Up Appearances. Hugs

I too like the revised paisley piece. Definitely cleaner and more obviously 'paisley'.

As for your mother...well, once a mother; always a mother. Sometimes we sigh... ;-)
