Don't you just hate it when .....

You get so engrossed with what you are watching on TV that you make mistakes in the thing you are making ... I was watching "Topic of Cancer" last night and managed to sew the beads on my latest creation on the wrong side !!! 

I am currently making a new pair if barefoot sandals.  I started out just making some motifs.  I have some lovely glass beads that I have been looking for an excuse to use.  This is often my design process, just start making something and see where it leads me.

And then decided that I would make barefoot sandals out of them.  I have joined the motifs so that they make an S shape and the next stage is to add some rocailles beads around the shape ... this is where I went wrong.  Oh well, I guess that its the mistakes and fixing them that makes the end result more special - well thats what I'm telling myself :)

So the task today is to fix the first one and sew the beads onto the second one.  More photos to follow, sorry about the quality of the photos here - they are taken with my mobile phone and it works much better as a phone than a camera :)
