Well the beading does make it beautiful, so back to the beading table for a little while longer!
The veil was cut out twice - once before it was to have lace
and another after pinning the lace and realizing it would be difficult to attach with it so close to the edge. So having bought lots of extra tulle, I cut veil # 2 - marked the finished edge with a Sharpie and cut @ 6" beyond the edge
making it easier to put in a hoop for sewing (pin marks the middle).
Then came the beading.
I am counting how many beads I have left. I'm not wanting to order any more and not figuring on beading the veil has left me without beads for "wiggle room". Each one is precious now as I scour my studio for those that have fallen off or under the tables.
