inspired by Paulette

I love blog hopping, and keeping up with what other people are working on, and often do this when my creative juices aren't flowing. And it's paid off! I was the third person to work on this corset and I added the lines of lace and pearls and painted the boning blue but it needed some 'pizazz'! What better than to have a go at 'picot beading' along the bottom edge. So thanks Paulette, it wouldn't have happened without you!! Or Julie, who 'met' Paulette before me on an internet forum!

I find beading very relaxing, as long as it doesn't get too repetitive, hence the variation in beads along the base of the corset. I also added beads randomly spaced along the lace. Above is a piece I made a few years back when I had glandular fever - beading is something you can pick up and put down whenever the mood/energy strikes!


  1. So lovely and Paulette's going to flip when she sees what you have done!
    Hope you have a great time on Hols! Will miss you dearly and will have tons to catch up on. If I were you, I would tuck that 'Marie' issue in your suitcase!
    Love ya xx

  2. Hi Sarah!

    I can not believe you would need inspiration from anyone...least of all me!!! Thank you Sweetie, I'm very flattered!

    Your corset is just stunning and so is the flower piece you did when you weren't feeling well. You do very beautiful work!

    I'm so happy I found Julie and now you too!

    Hugs, Paulette :o)

  3. This is beautiful - I am full of admiration, needles and me just don't mix - get all knotted up in about 2 seconds.
    Absolutely stunning.
