Rain, Rain and still more Rain!!

Rain rain go away come back another day!'s rain so much in the last couple of days I feel like I should be forming webbed feet! In some places it's like rivers have formed!! Oh least it's not snow!!!
I can't wait! Tomorrow is our meeting for the guild. We have "Bead Daze" Wednesday thru Saturday! Our teachers this year will be Huib Petersen, Stepanie Eddy, Marcia DeCoster, Dallas Lovett and Rachel Nelson-Smith. Tuesday night we get to meet with them. Usually they have question and answer period.
This year I'm taking Huib's "Sweet Pea" necklace. The picture of it is just goreous. It's a butterfly on one side and sweet peas on the other side. Just beautiful. This is a two day class, because it is worked diagonal and tubular peyote stitch, plus herringbone stitched is used in the neckband.
Then Friday and Saturday I'll be taking Dallas Lovetts classes. Friday is "Phonenix Rising" pendant. Saturday's class is "Crystal Symphony Bracelet". Both classes centers around Rivolis and sterling silver with seed beads. I just can't wait!! We've been trying for along time to get Dallas to teach at out guild. He's a very popular teacher!
They're all great teachers! Actually, Stephine Eddy was the first instructor that I had taken a class with, after joining the guild. Last year I took three of Marcia DeCoster's classes. She's a very good instrustor.
Can't wait to see what kit's that I can buy from these teachers. many beady little time!!
I think I better do some beading......I'm working on a necklace from the FEB/March issue of "Beadwork". It's a Marcia DeCoster's design called "Moonlit Rose".

If all that rain yesterday was snow, I don't think that we would be able to get to our classes on Wednesday!!

I found the Moonlit Rose picture in the magazine - I was looking on the wrong page. It will be interesting to see what you found for the rose in the center.

I can't wait to see all the projects going on during Bead Daze. Let's cross our fingers that I don't get pulled for jury duty. But I have a bad, bad feeling.....
