Beading Update



I managed to squeeze in a class from Kim Fields before I had to head back to work after my vacation. She taught us about making flower cane, petals and backgrounds. Most of the flower beads are practice from what she taught us - she was an amazing teacher, and I hope to be able to take more classes from her someday.

Hi Karin,
Loved the posts and pictures of your vacation. You must have had an amazing time seeing all this beauty.
Alhambra is really looking great. This is such a lovely mandela and I look forward to all your progress pictures.
Great monochromatic exchange - both given and received. Aren't exchanges wonderful? Are you a member of Fair & Square. If not - do take a look as it is great fun.
Absolutely love the gorgeous beads you have been making. These florals are all so special.
Enjoy the remainder of your long weekend.
