Sorry!






Gee, I didn't realize it had been a week since I'd been here....doing lots of stuff other than beading, so I just didn't think to post.
Today a friend came to town and we did our usual meet with lots of wip's, books, mags and other fun things to share. We got a bit of beading done....we also dropped by a sale another friend was having and I managed to score a few vintage sample cards, so I have some photos to post tonight.
Two of the cards have vintage lucite beads and the third card is of metal embellishments (for shoes, I think)...and as usual, the photos don't quite capture the aurora borealis effect all that well, but you can get a general idea.
I've been beading some of the crazy lace agates I bought a couple of weeks ago and I was also going to make bails for a few abalone disks I had bead-bezeled quite a while ago and just haven't gotten around to finishing.
So...a few beads were sewn down today anyway!

The batik behind the agates looks like it is coming through the agates like they were transparent. Very cool. Nice vintage wares as well. I was starting to worry about you.

I like the work that you are doing on the abalone disks. I have not tried bead bezelling-yet...

Man, I'm coveting a few of those metal bits! I especially like the ones labeled 9760 :- ) Lucky you!

Oh, I'm with Arline! Wow, that fabric is perfect with the agates. I love the abalone disks you have been working on too! But having a friend come and visit and bead and share...sounds like a lot of fun! Nice score on the vintage sample cards! Those shoe buckles are really cool!!!

Warm hugs...me
