So my pet project is still unsuccessful on attempt number fiveish, however I’ve come up with another idea to try so figures crossed for the next attempt. Still the other four attempts have given me a lot of general information, for example the gold ball and the white ball second from the end are made with the same size beads and have only one row of work difference between them, yet the size gap is considerable. The cream ball in between them is made with the same amount of rows as the gold ball but instead of adding a second dome to the bottom of it I added a flat base, which worked out to be too wide for my project, even though it fixed the height problem. Now this won’t be an issue with the smaller ball but it would make the height way too short, so my idea is to add to the flat base using a box technique and then join it to either the top and middle of a sphere or just to the top. As all but the dark Ferrero’s are balls, I’ll try the first option first. The white ball on the end was made with smaller beads and with the same amount of rows but the length of the beads compared to the width compared to the length and width ratio of the larger beads is longer and so throws the joining points of the “diamonds” into sharp relief, which is cool but doesn’t suit the project.
Haha sorry about the info dump but it really is a project I want to be able to make a reality. Well any way I’ve also been working on an order for Christmas, my second one and finished it today and will just have to organise delivery.
And then there is my next big project. Should I keep going with the Fibonacci project or leave that headache for the moment? Its very time consuming and might take several attempts as well to get right. Or should I start working on patterns I’ve brought as there are some pretty cool ones other than the Snowman box by Julia s. Pretl. I don’t have enough beads do make any large shapes for my shapes series but I could possibly do one or two more small ones. And then there is all the funky shapes I want to make which would mean learning a few new tricks which is always fun. Choices, choices, choices.
Well I’ll leave it there lovelies and who knows what I’ll be posting about next.
