As I have just practized a bit to get back into beading I may have to wait until next month to get better thread and not that thin nylon I was trying to use thinking it would not tear but it does. So the thread I am going to get will also have to be thicker. The only thing, I have to figure out a way how to keep the strings tight - somewhere I believe I got a small weaving frame, forgot where I put it. That would make things easier for me to start up again. Thanks for all the help, have a beautiful day.
