Bead Spree

Happy Sunday everyone,

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!


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time in SoCal. You went to 2 of my favorite places - Bohemian Beads and Philippe's.

  2. I'm still here Mia -- presenting this week at Beach Cities -- this was just 1 day of venturing fun -- wish we could connect somewhere, but the days are filling fast

  3. I'm loving those bead colors and the fact that you got to go to Phillipe's.

    1. heading into LB this morning Val -- to hang with a couple of folks and go to Katella Deli -- I know you're probably working so I will just have to wave in your direction!!
