It sure has been fun running around in SoCA this week, and I think it's time for a bit more sharing. During the week Dawn, Angelique and I did a run to downtown LA to refill my coffers with beads.
I had to hit my favorite Bohemian Beads and wander through picking up this bunch here, a bag there, and strands and strands of colorful stuff. I try to pick and choose according to those that I feel work well on a flat quilt -- but, I thoroughly admit to loving the shine of the crystal like or metallic beads.
Then yesterday Dawn and I sat around a big table mixing all the found beauties into color families and packaging them all up. There is nothing like feeling the beads running through your fingers and the ohhs & ahhs at the mixes. We had a blast.
Later on this month, during Quilt Week in Paducah,
I'll be running a special -- so be on the look out!
