While at SWIMUU I took a workshop one afternoon on beading. We made a spiral rope bracelet, and I made most of a second one before I left. OH DEAR, I see trouble ahead! I have always been mesmerized in good bead stores, but restrained myself from buying. Those days may be over. I’ve taught myself even peyote stitch and starting to look at some others. I don’t really want to make a lot of jewelry, but I’m thinking the bead stitching technique will come in handy for decorating books, boxes, etc. It’s nice to have something you can do on your lap while keeping company with the significant other and the tv.
