Then I thought I'd add an 'idea gallery' page of ways to dress up the simple beaded bead. Which meant stitching more beads as I found I'd given away or sold most of my inventory without photographing them, or didn't have the 'right' photos. Ouch!
The idea gallery expanded from one page to three, each showcasing a different bead pattern with project notes and diagrams.

I've worked on it at the studio and at home, at several different coffee shops, the library and even the local donut shop. Anywhere that had power and would let me sit for a few hours to work. I haven't added up all my time yet, and I'm pretty sure I don't want to as that's always a little daunting. I know I am ready to put this project aside for a while and move on to something else. But at the same time, I'm so pleased with how it's turning out! And it's interesting just how much I've learned in the process. Trying to explain it to someone else, really makes you codify your knowledge.
One last push to go! Tomorrow morning, I'll finish up this round of proofing (there's always more possible to do) and then I can list this puppy on Etsy! Followed shortly thereafter by kits. Almost there....
