The Goddess Is Here!

Bastet, the Egyptian Cat Goddess has joined our ranks today.

She is svelte and gracious and exudes elegance and grace.  In ancient Egypt she was the goddess of protection against contagious diseases and evil spirits.  So maybe while we work on her she will protect us from the last of the flu season :-)

Today was our first day of this Mystery Class.  Everyone had a really good time.  They even beaded in class.  No one beads in class.   This time they did as what else could they do when our goddess is completely, beaded?

I wanted her to look as though she was a carved statue, not a living breathing cat.

She is covered in three shades of beads with accents of metallic thread for the gold swirls and her sparkling eye. It really does sparkle.  I will try to get better pictures of that.

The beads are sewn on with a brick stitch which makes it go much more quickly than traditional row beading.  I love the look and I love the way it feels.

The snap tray designed for this class is awesome.  Love the colors.

All class participants receive the exclusive Flying Scarab magnet.  You know we love our magnets.

We also have a very pretty scarab scissor fob but it is sooooo shiny I haven't been able to get a decent photo yet.  Trust me, it is great and the price is right at $45.00

I can't wait to start stitching the next lesson.  She needs her environment filled with great stitches and threads.  More will be revealed in two weeks.  Until then, happy stitching.  If you are ready to join us I have a few spare canvases with more on the way! Give us a call at 410.296.0405 and we'll pack her bags and send her your way.
