Besides, smaller sections between knots limits the amount of loss if a thread breaks or gets cut while in use.

Inside the lane, underneath where I'm going to bead, I run the needle under the hide for about a 1/4", at a distance of roughly 1/2" from where I want to start my new thread. I tie a knot through a section of hide, fastening the thread to the skin. I do this a second time, moving to almost where I'm going to start. I trim the "tail" flush with the hide. Finally, I bring my needle up through the hide to the starting point.

At the end of the thread, I repeat the same knotting procedure. If I'm at the end of the lane, I run the thread and knots under the row.
same , same ! When I end my thread I run it on under the hide , into the center of the beading lane . Then I'll tack a couple stitches overlapping then trim it close and melt with a lighter. Same as a knot only lazier ! LOL The beads hide it. When I get all done I try to work the thread under to an edge or inside so it doesn't show.

They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
It's not me....I think you're an idiot !





There's a chance you might not like me ,

but there's a bigger

chance I won't care
