Stitching Chaos UPDATED

No, my stitching world isn't chaotic.  It's bland.  (I really really LIKE boring, don't you?)  However, if you want a small and fun project that memorializes the chaos that is all around you, Ruth Schmuff has a great little Ryn canvas with a Sheena James stitch guide that'll knock your socks off!

This uses the new tiny cube beads.  They are almost 2mm square, which means that they are around the size of an 11 bead (sometimes written 11/0).  Since they are cubes, they lay perfectly flat.  Ruth now stocks a large range of colors of the baby cubes.  From what I can tell, the Miyuki 3mm and 4mm cubes are mostly what bead shops carry, so with the baby cubes you can have three sizes of cubes.  Sheena did us all a service by finding a source for these so Ruth can stock them at her shop, Bedecked and Beadazzled!

If you are living in the State of Love or State of Wonder instead, not to worry. Sheena's done guides for the entire license plate series from the creative mind of Ryn.

UPDATE:  Here is Chaos finished.  I thought you'd enjoy seeing the model.
