The Prodigy Bead/Chile fiesta was wonderful fun. I'm feeling lonesome for everyone today. I'm counting the days until next year's gathering. I lost my camera so I don't have photos. That's the bad news. The good news is I found the camera this morning under a pile of clothes in my suitcase. Once again disorganization rears it's ugly head! Mary Tafoya has a post on her blog and hopefully she will have more photos soon.Thursday night some of the beaders arrived and met for dinner at Tortilla Flats. Things got rolling Friday with a poly clay collage class by Jan Jones. Bonnie Brooks and I did a wee bit of shopping Friday. OK, so Bonnie did more than a wee bit but who's counting? Rita Sova joined us for lunch at Clafoutis French restaurant. We had a wonderful lunch and pretended we were in Paris. Dinner was at The Shed. Yummy! Mary did a class on making silver wire earrings. I had no idea one could make so many variations on an ear wire.Saturday Sally Ingram taught a class in making objects with buttons and thread. Did Bonnie do more shopping? Maybe just a wee bit more! Out dinner was at Blue Corn Cafe and afterwards Rita Sova showed us more tricks to use with the Versa-Loom. Saturday night was Girls Only Night with No Boys allowed back in the beading room. Did we get a big case of the giggles? Maybe!Sunday afternoon Bonnie and I went to the Museum of International Folk Art. I wish we could have stayed all day. It was wonderful. They had a beautiful gift shop too so Bonnie did even more shopping! Dinner was at Harry's Roadhouse.And did I do any shopping? I'll admit to spending a bundle on delicious chocolates at The Chocolatesmith but that's all I'll admit. You just never know if Coop might read my blog!!!
