Bead Haven Workshop

Diane Fitzgerald's workshops were awesome. Everyone had such a good time. We had such a nice group of ladies. And the level of beading was incredible. Diane said she had never had such a talkative group and "not a pill in the group!" It was a pleasure having Diane as our guest.
I made a ginkgo leaf and am working on a second one. It is fun working with and blending the colors in different ways for each leaf.
Casey took lots of pictures so I will try to post. I hope we can do this again. Who should we invite for our next workshop? Hmmm...

One of these won't be long

OK! I haven't been here in awhile. I have been so busy with the stores. Somethimes too busy. But I feel I am getting it together and am making time now.
I have been watching my favorite, Neil Young: Heart of Gold this evening. Burt was kind to watch football on the small tv while I chill out in the basement with the Big TV.
I have been beading my quilt square a little at a time. I hope to be finished soon so I can start something new. Also have freeform on my mind, stringing with all the new beads, pearls, crystals, ok, any bead will do!
The Village Shops at Kingsmill had their Holiday Gala last nite. All the stores stay open until 8 PM, have food, drink, music, sales and fun. It was a good time. I enjoyed seeing people who came by the store last year as well. Wow, 2 years there now!
Ok, I am getting a bit wordy here after not writing for so long. I think I will go to my room now. (thats a good thing)
