Carpet part 1

Okay, I need a carpet about 6″x6″, I believe. Maybe a tad larger. Here’s about 1.25″ of the width. This is a good traveling project, one color of beads, no pattern to track. I use one-needle right angle weave, so it ends up with a grain. If I did two-needle, the beads would be more at a right angle. To keep the grain consistent, I always hold the beadwork the same way; the thread ends are up, and towards the top. I also haven’t trimmed the tails for another reason, so that doing the fringing that creates the pile doesn’t pull the tails out. I’ll trim as I add that layer.

The lovely thing about RAW is how flexible it is. Look, a rose!
