Ooh, I've never done a Mill Hill that was just beading. Very interesting texture. I know I'm behind on reading/commenting, so this is quite late, but I hope you're feeling better!
I love Mill Hill kits. They are quite inexpensive so you should get one and try it out :) Thanks I am slowly starting to feel better. So far 2015 hasn't been good health wise, but here's to wishing more positive vibes.
