Things I have forgotten - beading edition  
- Peyote stitch bracelets should be slinky, not structural
- Long beading needles work better for me
- Threading a needle gets harder every year
- The difference in threads is amazing
- Cylinder beads are not delicas
- Take breaks
- Good light is really useful
- ♥ beading

- Look at your pattern

One of my design elements is upside down. *sigh*

That looks like a real PITA to assemble.

When will Wednesday be old enough to thread the needle? And when she is, may I borrow her?

Good question. She's four tomorrow, so, not anytime soon. OTOH, last Christmas, I got two sorts of sewing needles that practically thread themselves. They work great for buttons and mending, but the eyes are too broad to make multiple passes through itty bitty beads. I'll try to remember them when next I see you.
