What's the Longest you ever sat & beaded?

How long have you sat in one place and worked on a project? Are you a Marathon Beader (eat, sleep, & bead) OR Are you a fun-run Beader (takes u 3 months to finish an earing)

I spent 6 hrs. on my daughter's yoke this spring at one time; boy was my bottom numb! Otherwise, I take many breaks, and if I'm not in the mood to bead a project, it can take months or years to finish it. My favorite barrette I made for myself; took me 3 yrs to make because I couldn't decide how to best make it look like a realistic dragonfly, I was very picky with it because it is mine, but in the end I'm happy with it, and I wear it alot.

I bead quite a bit.... lately anyways since Im out of school , for the past 4 days Ive been beading for like 4or 5 hrs straight.... one time I was beading for like about 7 hrs straight.

Thats probably not very long compared to some people.

one time my cous and one of my friends had to finish some crowns for me for the powwow and I think they were beading for like 13 hrs straight
lol

I spent an entire saturday, save for bathroom , cigarette and food breaks to finish some beading for my wedding outfit so it would be done in time.

I have not been under pressure but have sat down about 3 hours and that is about my average. I few years back I did manage to finish a rossette in a day and start looming a headband to go with it. I usually have two or three things going on at the same time and have to spread it out evenly and knock out what I can.

2 or 3 hours at a time is normal for me, though I did 4 hours once. My eyes start to cross after that. I usually bead while watching TV, so I admit that my attention wanders sometimes.

I sat down one day , and beaded a small bottle for my cuz. It took 8 hours! Bathroom breaks, butt breaks, hand and eye breaks, wer all in this time period!

I have gotten away from beading, but I am feeling the urge again! It is something that I would like to get into doing every day, or at least every other!

Wow, I don't really know for sure. I've beaded a whole day on my niece's crown before, but of course I had a few breaks to eat, use the bathroom, or other small mundane things. This was before my back started hurting though. Nowadays, I can't sit still.

8 hours straight. No bathroom, no breaks whatsoever!!

I'll never do it again!!

My back was messed up for a day or so.

Was beading a staff for someone.

The never ending leggins

I have these pair of leggins, I was trying to finish a new fancy dance outfit for a pretty big powwow that I was head dancer for, and I really wanted to finish these leggins...there were only 3 basic colors with an additional accent color... I beaded these things DAY IN AND DAY OUT...and had the fill in done completely on one, and the designs filled in completely on the other.... wouldn't you know the night before the powwow about oh 2 am ALL THE REST OF MY BEADS FELL INTO THE CARPET, and my father had dogs, so here I was on my hands and knees with dog hair carpet and beads and duct tape on my hands...eventually I gave up...and continued to bead down to the dance...and when we got there you know...I NEVER FINISHED those leggins there they sit in my cubby hole to this day...never to be on my legs...cause by this time I can't stand them and think they are ugly and will never wear them GRRRRRRR

My longest stretch was 16 hours. But that included bathroom and eating breaks. It was a killer....teach me to procrastinate.

Thought you were a fancy dancer man :) You dancing both fancy and traditional?

Longest I've beaded at a time was probably 10-11 hours. Mostly, I'll just bead an hour a day until I finish whatever project I'm working on. That way I don't get sick of it :)

I haven't touched a bead all year, but will probably start back in late fall. I don't bead much except during cold weather.

Yep, I was trying to finish my daughter's leggings before graduation and we went marathon on 'em. I hardly slept for 3 days and when I was eating or showering, she was beading them. We got them done 1/2 hour before graduation, but they missed out on the pictures, darn it.

I was beading on the couch, in bed, in the car, at the table.

Luv dem beeds

Beaded 8 straight in a car on a trip to powowow, wife driving, listening to Northern Cree singers,Eyabay,Thunderhouse, and Kicking Woman. Great trip, great powwow. To bead is to create, to create is to imitate, a pale version of the work of ther Father.

that sounds like a good time. . .we drove 12 hours straight to montana for a powwow . . . and it was just me and my friend jessie who was driving. I'll always remember we were driving through the mountains and the sun was coming up, I was beading a hairtie, and we were listening to Harvey Dreaver ....man it was beautiful!!!!.....until this deer came out in the road ...and my friend SLAMMED on her breaks...and my beadwork went everywhere!...lol...good times...:) (the deer was ok)
