Beady Cactus - Finished!

 I think I haven't had a regular progress update in a while, but I'd like to get back into the habit of it again! So, to rewind a bit, back in October was the last time I consulted my random number generator to pick up a project for a rotation, and my Beady Cactus came up. I was quite happy with that, as I had only put around 5 hours into it originally, and was quite sure that another ten would see it finished!

I was right about that, but I just didn't expect those ten hours would take me almost two months! But then in November I got caught up with the new starts, and then with finishing them, so I only picked it up again last week. There wasn't much left to go, though, and now it's all finished and pretty and sparkly!

Total Time: 12:54h

It came with everything you needed for finishing - the wooden shape, beads, thread and needle, of course, a perfectly cut of thing green felt to cover the back with (okay, I *did* need some glue to do that, although I think I probably could have sewn it on as well?), and the wooden stand with that adorable little 'doily' shape (made from foam). I thouroughly enjoyed working on this and I am sure I'll get more of there kits in the future, they are so fun and pretty (and rather inexpensive as well).

How cute is that! I think I need to make my oldest son one--he loves his succulents, but keeps killing them :)

The cactus is adorable, I thought it was 3D when I first saw it!
