Better Than Sliced Bread - Quick Beaded Fringe
I just got a "bead spinner" and it is the best-est most awesome tool for making beaded fringe for bellydance costumes. It strings the beads so fast it takes longer to actually thread and tie off the needle than stringing. The bead spinner I got is the cheap low-brow version. Some come battery operated and some with multiple bowls for changing out beads and colors faster. It's seriously the coolest thing ever! If you make your own costumes I highly recommend getting one. Making your own fringe is not only cheaper than buying pre-made, you can make exactly the color, length, and amount you want, straight, v-shaped, looped, etc.
A quick thanks to those of you who've sent me get well wishes. My voice is touch and go and I've injured my ribs to the point they hurt even when I sit still. I can't dance at all. I started practicing zills yesterday since I can do that without moving. If I don't improve any more in the next few days I'll be heading back to the doctor for a third visit. *sigh*
