In the last month I have received 2 very nice gifts of beads. The most recent was a whole box that a friend had been given from her friend. Last weekend I drove up to Whidbey Island where my friend and several women in her family had gathered. We spent a whole afternoon digging through the box and each of them made something. The 3 little girls with us had a blast making some very sparkly necklaces and bracelets.
I have sorted and organized my new treasures into colors and type. Yes I know I am anal, but having them in a jumble makes me crazy! Many of the new beads are crystals and I am using them in my new suncatchers. I'll post more pictures when they are done.
