Let's think spring!!

This is the beginning of a Mill Hill Button and Bead kit. I love the colors. This will be Main Street's Ice Cream Shoppe. I have been trying to figure out how to handle the beads for this one. I will use a ton of beads on this. They arrive in three little plastic bags. How to separate them? How to organize them for use during the project? All these questions are being considered at this point. The last time I did one of these (Santa) I spent hours separating each and every bead by color and then putting them in separate little containers. I am not sure it was worth the effort.

Oh, but that Santa was so perfect! I can't wait to see this one. Is there a whole "street" of shops? Like a series?

You will be happier putting all the colors in one container and picking them up as you go. If there are many colors, maybe seperate half and half. Do you have a bead mat? that helps with the dropped ones. I use a "bone dish" (like Mom's) because the curve of the sides helps. Anyway, this is going to be a sweet treat for everyone!!
