I'll be heading off for a week in Lancaster, PA tomorrow to judge/lecture/teach, while 'the husband' holds down the fort at home.  My posting may be paused again due to the $12.95 daily for the hotel internet service.  I'll be looking for hotspots so we can stay in touch!

All of my technique beading classes are nearly full, however there is room in my all-day Thursday workshop....."What Goes Around" a scissors sheath project class. Supplies are easy as a kit is if you are going to the show and looking for an activity on Thurs., check this class out.  The main technique we will be studying is the even count peyote stitch which is used to surround and hold the mirrors to the fabric.

 I'll also be presenting an evening lecture that night at 7:00 PM.

 That same technique, with some variation, is highlighted on this quilt "Amethyst" 8.5" x8.5".

I also used it on "Elements" 5.5" x 10", to attach the cabochon to fabric I'd rusted.

If you are coming to the sure to look me up, I'd love to visit with you.
