This month I got to do a favorite bead thing: bead a stick. My little stick has been waiting for this spot for months, so it’s happy that July is here. Since this was a “double” spot (two long skinny shapes next to each other to fill in the same month), my stick needed a companion or two. I’ve never done beaded wire flowers, but last year got the bug to wire some leaves. I had a plan in mind for them, but that plan went through a few changes, and when this opportunity came up, they found a perfect home.
