Rumblings of a Bead Addict

Rumblings of a Bead Addict

So Much To Do So Little Time!

Breast Cancer Quilt square, bead emboridered by LJCreations. Polymer Clay Leaf added in honor of Barb "Bent Needle" Davis

I'm sure everybody has said that at one time or other, but it sure holds true for me. And ontop of it all, it seems I don't have anything to show how busy I've been..Oh well. That's part of life!!
In the post from Tuesday 01/26 I stated that we're doing a Beaded Quilt in honor of Barb "Bent Needle" Davis. Hopefully, I can post the picture of it. I also included a Polymer Clay leaf that she had done. (Thanks Liz for letting me have the leaf)
Last time I mentioned that I was working on a embellished cuff, well I'm almost finished with it. But, I ran out of Swarovski crystal sequins, Laura will bring some more for me when she comes into town on Feb 21 for our "Bead Daze" classes. So I'm working on her kit "That's A Wrap". It is beautiful! It can be worn as a necklace or as a bracelet. It's a peyote bezeled Swarovski 10mm Rivoli (15 0f them) in Volcano color. She has some beautiful kits. If you get a chance stop by her site and check it out.
I mentioned Bead Daze, I can't wait. The Guild is bringing in Laura McCabe, Lisa Nivens-Kelly, Huib Peterson Maggie Meister. I hope I didn't forget anybody. I'm taking Huib's "Monarch Butterfly" class and Maggie's "Campania Morning Walk". Both are two day classes and both are challenging bead work pieces. That's OK, it's time I started to learn this type of beadwork.

Time Got Away From Me!

Gee I really didn't pay attention to what date it is and didn't realize that I haven't posted in awhile, until my friend told me last night. (She visited the site to see what it was about.)

My Holidays were great!! Had the week off from work. Our New Years Eve party was just wonderful. I couldn't believe all the great food!

Last week at our monthly Bead-Guild meeting. (it's in a new place, nice place, just a little further to drive) We found out that we're going to be beading a bead quilt, in honor of a former member (Barb bent-needle Davis). It's mystery quilt called "Ribbons for a Cure". I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done. Of course this will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to a cancer foundation. Of course I got my square!

Right now I'm working on a Laura McCabe kit, it's a beaded embellished cuff....It's just too kewl!
