|The earth's beaded gown--ready for Holiday parties. Porcelain berries, stems and leaves on damp earth.|
Were a brown velvet covered with these colors and shapes, a dress made from it would stop the show!

Holidays Are Nearly Here
I can tell because the earth has her gown ready. The fabric is a rich brown studded with brilliant pearl-sized beads in turquoise, purple and aquamarine. Gold bugle beads with splashes of "gold-leaf" complete the design. If sewing this fabric were part of the Things I get to do today, I'd be a bit of a wreck. Sewing beaded fabric is not for the faint in heart. But Nature drapes herself in exquisite garb that needs no needle, no thread, and only observant heads turn to admire.
