Beading – Beaded shoe.

Earlier this year I went to the craft and quilting fair held in Perth at the convention centre. While I was there I met Gwendoline Oxton who was watching the Jill Oxton Cross Stitch and Beading Stand. While we chatted I mentioned to her that I hadn’t taken my beading much further because I couldn’t figure out brick stitch. Gwendoline suggested I try making up some of the shoes from issue 60 of the magazine (I’m a subscriber so I had this at home) to practice. So here is my first shoe, a flat slide in green and gold. It’s about an inch long and just adorable!!

The joke is – brick stitch is really easy!
