Not Much Progress

As my post title states, not much progress to report :(

I have been more than sidetracked with life.  My sister came to visit after my mother left, so I had her to entertain.  I've been working a lot which leaves me tired at the end of the suck up your energy!!! My husband's birthday was yesterday, so there was that to plan and run around for. Oh, and I made bread for my first time!! Tons of fun to make bread! It didn't look that great, but it tasted amazing. With all of that going, where did my stitching go??  It was staring at me pleading to be worked on!! Especially those biscornus.  I have started working on the backs of them but I am really unsure of how I want to finish them.  Beading the edges seems to me to take a lot of time and I really just want to get one done.  Tassels are not my best friend, and no matter how much I try to make them look good, they never do.  So hopefully this weekend will be a bit quieter and I can finally get my biscornu's under way.

Questions on finishing

Suggestions to making beading go faster? Should I stitch up the biscornus then bead with the beading needle if I feel they need a little pizazz? Or just leave the edges clean?

Pics of slow progress. Also a pic of the picture frames I found while scouring the Lower mainland thrift shops. Still no frame found good enough for my geisha girl!

Thinking of projects to fill the frames with

I don't always bead the edges of biscornu but now and again I do. It depends on my mood lol!

I think you should be your own judge when beading or not beading your biscornus. It's entirely up to you. If you think they need it, then by all means, do it. If you don't, then don't. I like the colors you're using. Tanglewood looks good too. And I like your frames. I'm sure you'll be able to find a project for them all.
