Update June 07. Finished
The beaded cigarette.

Bonus portrait:

The brick stitch is being expanded with extra and wider beads to maintain the "flatness" of the circle, until the grey and yellow beads are reduced in number to contract the circle into a parasol / mushroom-cap shape.

The "cap" was then stitched together, with beads in between, to bring the edges together.

Then a regular brick stitch is being used to finish off the bottom, with random colour, uniform-size beads.

This brick-stitch project has given me the idea of creating small beaded dolls. The folded, stitched mushroom-cap shape looks like the shoulders and beginning of arms.

I like to do things that other people are not doing; or even thinking of doing.

Your comment means that I am on the right track.
