On The Down Bead
Topic: Paper Embroidery

Can you name that tune? I'm not even sure anyone can PLAY that tune!

An assignment to use beads on paper embroidery led me to choose a pattern with musical notes on it. However, the original pattern had SIX lines on the staff. That's not right! So I eliminated one line. Then, all the plain old notes were boring so I added flags to some to change the timing and tied some of them together. More interesting to view, but not musically sound, I'm sure.

I pricked this pattern out on a musically printed cardstock complete with gold foiling on some elements. I double-stitched the beads onto the notes to make them more secure for mailing.


I added a little treble clef sticker as a finishing touch.
