Sparkle

Stitching Alabama Chanin-style can become rather obsessive.

Once you actually get over the intimidation factor and just make something . . . Well.  You discover it's really fun to stitch by hand.  And the garments you stitch are super comfortable to wear.  And the creative opportunities are just endless.

Earlier this summer I decided I wanted a simple, black tunic.  Nothing fancy.  No stenciling.  No appliqué.

But then . . . I decided to add some beads.

And then . . . more beads.
(Because it really is an obsession.)

I think I'm done with the beads now.  
(But maybe not.)
(You never know.)

In the end, I got my simple, black tunic.

(Now with bonus sparkle!)
