BFAC Progress!

Wow...it's been one crazy week, lemme tell ya!

Whenever we leave for a show, returning home is always a bit nuts. Heck, not showing up to work for a few hours creates an abundance of work that needs to be caught up on....so leaving for several days in a row creates mayhem!

Plus I think I got a touch of food poisoning on the last day of the show....it didn't knock me down, but it certainly kept rearing it's ugly head during this past week.

Shawn and Sara drove tandem on the way home from Milwaukee and managed to make it home Wednesday evening. That would be 2300 miles in 3 days! Freaks! You know that big white blur on the freeway? That was them! ;o)

I took some images this year of the Bead Dreams exhibits and some of the vendors. Here's a link: B&B Photos

I also managed to work on my BFAC project a bit on the plane to and from Milwaukee and then for a few minutes here and there in the evenings this past week. I guess the way this works is if you click on the image a new window will open with the enlarged version of it so you can actually see the beads I added. I cut some of the waves out of a piece of the fabric and using WonderUnder (thanks, Dot!) I ironed them onto the surface. My added bead for BFAC is a size 15 Matte Silverlined Straw Gold. So far I've used it to accent the waves, which also helps to quilt the fabric into place. The only bead from the kit I've used so far is the White Pearl 11....but today we are going down to Sunnyvale (about a 2 hour drive from here) for my nephews 40th b'day (OMG!) and Father's day, so I'll have some car time to work on it more.


I'm really struggling hard to get it done before the end of the month so that I can at least start my Bead Journal page for June in the month of June!!

I am experiencing the beaders worst nightmare times ten right now....no where near enough time to bead!

Last little bit of news....my classes for the Big Apple Art Glass & Bead Festival have been posted! I'll be teaching an Intro to PMC, and two sets of classes each in Clasps & Tags and PMC Beads! If you're in the area or are planning to attend, I'd sure love to see you there!

Now I should go shower before the party, eh? Which basically just means even more time away from my beading!
