Horseshoe in progress

In case anybody was thinking I'd packed my bags and left tat land well, no, I haven't!!! I'm giving brain cell # 3 a break at the moment and just 'playing'.
We're going to a re-wedding in September and I wanted to make something special for the bride (our neighbour) so I'm making a horseshoe. This is it 'so far'. I want to decorate it lots and am currently working on a gold (beaded, of course!) edging which I'll show in a few days time. Meanwhile here it is mounted on fabric and stiffened.
Oh, this is the reason I found the way of adding beads while working - too lazy to decide ahead which ones to load onto the shuttles!!!
Ah, so does this make it truly a lucky horseshoe?

This is very pretty Jane. It should bring the re-bride and groom much luck. Apparently it has brought you and all of us much luck so far if it is what inspired your new technique! Can't wait to see what comes next.

Very pretty! Very thoughtful gift.

Well, you know me; don't believe in 'luck' as such ~
But it's said, "necessity is the mother of invention," and that fits the adding beads solution!
It is a lovely thought and a lovely piece!
