This Weekend in Beads...getting caught up

I went shopping last Weekend with my Boyfriend's Mom, Margaret (shes a beader too.) We went to Red Door Beads in Stanwood. I found so much stuff.......

And of course, Margaret and I had to trade beads..(she gave me chain, locket, adventurine drops and pink opal drops. Oh and a way cool vintage wicker lunch basket, the new home of my embroidery stuff)

So...did I also mention Margaret works at a hardware store? No? Well, let's just say it's not a good idea for me to be turned loose in there...strange things happen (see below)

Now...something normalish...a super fast embroidery project (done in 2 days.) I could not sleep knowing I owned a rainbow moonstone cab and it was unbeaded.

I could stare at it for hours....kina hard since I am wearing it right I am sad though, I used up most of my antique french cut steel seed beads on this guy. I need to find more (they are real steel and super cool!)

OMG I just checked Lori's Pretty Things blog!! I made it into the Bead Soup Blog Party YAY!!!EEEEEEE!

Um, yeah I am a little excited.


  1. I love love love moonstone and your work is lovely! I to would be wearing that pendant. Congrats on the Bead Soup!

  2. Christina,
