New patterns!

I uploaded 26 patterns for names and words in Chinese calligraphy today. You can see them by clicking

Now that the upload is done I can get back to working on a bead embroidery necklace. Yes, I'm learning to love the technique! The piece I'm working on isn't a big necklace but so far it's looking good.

April project

Wheeeeeeee! I finished my April Bead Journal project last night. I'm actually not ashamed to show this project to others. I'll try to photograph all my projects soon. Bead embroidery is definitely getting easier and I am enjoying it now. I got ambitious and started a bracelet last night. This start was a BIG learning experience. I used a beautiful stone oval as the centerpiece. I had a good bit of the bezel done when I realized the stone is too large. I need a curved stone!!! So.... plan B.... I'll turn it into a fill-in-the-blank!

April Bead Journal

I'm working on my project for April. Bead embroidery is getting easier but my fingers keep wanting to do peyote stitch! We'll see if this old dog can learn a new trick.

I've been busy uploading some new items to my download web site. Take a peek here!
