Usually I don't count my seed beads as stash in the sense of these posts. Yes, I do have a lot of colors, and there are definitely some that have been around for a long time, some because I didn't have an idea for them yet, some of which I only needed a few when I got them, but it's hard to tell apart what is what.
The beads for today's stash tackle project, however, were easy to pick.
A while ago I had ordered a lined pale lavender color. Unfortunately I found out it came out so pale that it got lost in the piece, so the tube went into the drawer where it stayed.
When I decided to use up some wild bead soup from very random colors that I had spilled into my bead tray over the time, but knew it wouldn't be enough, the pale lavender was just the right background.
This is the finished project now, a miniature tote bag with fringe, done in brick stitch. It's only part of a much bigger WIP. Do you want to guess what is it that it will belong to?
