Bead Journal Project

I'm working on my third month now. My bead embroidery skills have gotten better. I still have a long way to go before I feel comfortable with the technique. Rated from 1 to 10, I started at 0 and am up to 2! It would help a lot had I learned to do regular embroidery at some time in my checkered past. I'll post photos as soon as I get up the courage to show other people. It feels good to learn something new, doesn't it?

Ingrid Teboe arrived yesterday and we have not stopped talking! We have been e-mailing for over three years. It's so much fun to meet an on-line friend in person. We just got back from the first night at BeadFest. Thank goodness it was only open 4 hours or we would be totally broke! I got to visit with Mary Tafoya, Betsey Ventrella and her husband Mark, Nikia Angel and Marcus Amerman. Can't wait till tomorrow!!!

Coop just had the staples removed from his knee surgery so we are headed home. I can't wait to get to Santa Fe.
