Braille in beads

So it’s pretty much crunch time in school. Our final outfit is due at the end of this coming week which also means I have to finish my textiles for the look as soon as possible!

I spent 5 hours today beading 3 rows of braille that says “I am not blind” onto a mesh sleeve. Goodness, it makes me feel so slow and unproductive. After doing such manual labour, I have really developed an appreciation for all handwork. I’m not used to seeing the clock tick by so quickly while the work in front of me doesn’t seem to be progressing as fast.

The final look will be coming this week! And yes, I should be posting on Shanghai soon… SOON, I promise 🙂
