I've been working my way through the book "Little Bead Boxes" by Julia S. Pretl.
I'm attaching photos of the first 2 boxes I made. They still need feet and a finial.
The 3rd box I'm now working on has a pattern that is much more detailed.
I was almost finished and took a good look at the little box and noticed
I had a flaw in the pattern that was TOO obvious for me to ignore and
be comfortable with.
I just ripped out at least 5 HOURS worth of bead stitching!! UGH. But I
couldn't let it stay. It would have bothered me FOREVER.
Lesson learned - keep a close eye on your pattern while your working. :(
