Karla Krafts

This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Beaded Windowscreen

Here're the results of a recent experiment. I got a roll of fiberglass windowscreen at Lowes Home Improvement for about $5.00. I did some "beadpoint" using glass seed beads, Nymo beading thread, and a graph I enlarged from the Cross-Stitchers Club. I'm pretty pleased with the results, but it was really hard to photograph. The beads are very reflective.

I'd planned to put the piece in a tinier hoop and fix it as a suncatcher. Unfortunately, you can see the stitching when the light hits it a certain way. I am developing Plan B!
