New Magic Carpet Colorway
I used 4 of the colors in this week's Monday's Mix to create a new Magic Carpet Colorway
I wear glasses and have a slight astigmatism, so following bead charts are a challenge for me. I found the best way is to use a metal typing stand to hold the chart and then use two strips of magnetic tape to only show the row I'm working on. As I finish each row, I slip the magnetic strips down to the next row. The really makes it easy to follow the grid.
