If you work with glass beads in your stitching, this tip might help to keep them in place. Wrap a piece of cellophane tape (sticky side out) on the forefinger of your non-stitching hand. Now you can pick up and hold all the beads you need to work with just by dipping your finger into the container holding the beads. It is amazing how much faster the beading goes.
I have used this idea when sorting beads as well, when the colours are all mixed together, I take a large flat tray and sort them into piles of each colour, by using the tape it is easier to pick them up and place them in their separate containers.
