I should be working but I have been distracted by the most incredible website. http://www.maisondesperles.com
All my tiny glass beads come from Japan and the Japanese certainly know how to use them in embroidery!
Everything appears to be worked on the finest, tissue paper thin fabric using what appears to be a very thin crochet hook. I think it is how the French haute couture designers work……I NEED to know how to do this!!! Especially as the cheapest, tiniest item in the shop starts at £60 before shipping from Japan!
