Wow, go you! I was wondering if you might share your method sometime of how you do this actually? I've never beaded a project, but this seems more advanced from what I think of as "beading"... which is sewing a bead here and there on a dress. :P
Can I just say how impressed I am that you're making so much progress on this while sick? I probably wouldn't have the patience to tackle a project like this when I was feeling 100%, let alone while I wasn't feeling well. Go, you!
It's funny I do some of my best work like this when I'm sick. It's rather relaxing, takes little energy and much more entertaining than TV or movies. It feels good to be accomplishing something while I'm feeling so blah too.
