My new loom

Having successfully hand-stitched beaded patterns I was eager to try a loom, which allows for larger beadwork.  I thought it would be easier, but so far, I don’t think it is.  I made up a pattern, and after counting and placing the beads on the string, they are pushed up between the long (warp) threads and then I sew through them from left to right.  It’s harder than it seems, getting them lined up and making sure the needle stays on top of the warp threads.  For my next project, I will try smaller, rounder beads; perhaps that will be easier.
