With all of our Perler Bead projects lately, most of my time is spent in picking out the correct beads. It seems like it takes forever to do that, but the actual making of the project goes quickly. Elizabeth had mentioned that she sorted hers all out, and I thought, what a great idea! So I embarked on a project, spending maybe 20 hours over the next couple of weeks, picking and sorting beads. My mom helped for a few hours on a Friday when she was here, as well. It is worth it when we play, because it really does make the projects go much more quickly. No counting or sorting -- just grabbing the bead we need when we need it.
