Technique: Bead Embroidery

Bead a cover for a journal using needlepoint or cross-stitching canvas. Some people refer to this technique as beadpoint, a combination of beading and needlepoint. Beginning in the early nineteenth century, livres du poche or "pocket books," small-format books of charts, made needlework patterns widely available. This design is based on a chart, circa l930, from a pocket book published by Maison Sajou in Paris. Finished beaded canvas measures 5 3/4" x 3 78". Instructions include a full page color chart. Originally published in the July/August 2000 issue of PieceWork, this project will be free for a limited time.

Will this work if I loomweave this instead of doing needlepoint? I have no clue if needlepoint work and loomweaving work can be used with the same graph. I love loomweaving but have no clue about needlepoint. I saw this on one of HGTV's programme a year or so ago and wasn't too crazy about beadweaving with needlepoint technique which is why I ask if loomweaving can be done instead. Thanks so much for sharing the patterns, especially at no cost. To share a pattern of any kind is extremely generous and a very kind thing to do. Thank you!

Is it possible to obtain the graphs for some of the other needlepoint covers shown in the picture; specifically, the brown lab and the rose? Please, please? I'm willing to buy them, if I can find them. This project is absolutely beautiful. Thanks
