Easter Fairy

This one seems to be flying by so here's my update as of tonight:

I also found out today that two of my friends are pregnant and one is having twins! So now its time for me to start working on their gifts too. :o)

EDIT: Someone pls help me. I wanted to add some of the beads to this to help fill in some of the areas as I go, but once the bads slide down the needle to the floss they stop and won't get over the eye of the needle with the floss, I don't own a smaller needle and I am using the one that came with the kit. How did you get yours to slide on? Do I need to wet th floss? I am using one strand.

You need to get a beading needle. They are made so that the eye, is smaller so that the bead will slide over it :)

You've made a lot of progress, looking very pretty. As to the beads, unfortunately you'll need to get a smaller needle, a beading needle, so the needle will go through the hole. However, in the meantime try different beads in the packet you have and see if maybe some of the others will work until you get a smaller needle. I've found that beads I get have centers of slightly various sizes and sometimes some will work while others don't. One other idea that you could also try is if you have one of the little wire needle threaders, maybe that would pass through the bead, then you could put the floss on it and pull it back through.

Your Easter Fairly is looking great! good luck with the beads!

I don't have a small beading needle, the one I have and tried is too big at the eyelet too, so I think I will look around and see if I have a wire needle threader like Sue suggested. If not then I guess the beads will have to wait. Thanks everyone for your help. :o)
