The mandeel

Work on the Mandeel continues. This involves long swathes of edging.

I'm using the method: Needle up through the fabric, 4 beads, big sequin, 4 beads, take the needle round & push it up through the fabric again about 1 cm along, tie a knot in the thread as a precaution against the thread ever breaking, and losing whole lengths of beading at once. The scarf itself is about 50cm x 140cm, so that's nearly 4 metres of edging that needs doing. It's mindless work, but it's just a case of getting down & doing it. It goes fairly quickly.
