Wow, how time flies...I know it's been almost a whole month since my last post. But I really didn't have anything of interest to say. Do you really want to know what I ate for breakfast? I don't think so. This month my Guild had it's annual Quilt show. My Via Appia got an Honorable Mention. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get to the show this year. I had signed up for a 3 day bead class that wound up being the same weekend. And since it was with a renowned bead artist, Nancy Cain, I really didn't want to miss it. It was wonderful and if you get a chance to take a class with her do it...We did 3 projects. The first one was called Solar Star. When I first saw this project I thought, mmm that looks easy. HA! Of the 3 projects this was the hardest. It took me 3 tries before I got the inside points sharp. So that it wrapped around the star neatly. The Swarovski crystal I choose had a larger hold than the other colors and was pretty noticeable. So I decided to add the tiny stars hanging from it. The next project is called Crystal Tile. It is not done yet. I will show that later, in the meantime I guess I will show the 3rd project which is called 3 Sisters...But you have to wait until I photograph it.
