I am still here...

Hello all,
Just dropping a note to say I am still here and working on February's project,
albeit slowly.  There have been some things going on here that called for my putting the beading aside for a bit.  Family health problems and then one of my Standard Poodles has
injured his knee and has surgery this morning...poor baby is hobbling around on three legs!  So sad.  Well, now, while I nurse him back to good health, I will sit and bead...it should make for an interesting piece!
Take care all!
Debi W.

Robin, thank you for your comments on January's project...yes I was thinking about the mountains, about sitting by the rushing stream, about running (in earlier days!) through the fields...all while I listened to THE CLIMB and beaded.  I am very touched by so many people's comments and encouragement!


  1. Hope you can get back to relaxing and creating soon. Glad Doc is on the mend. How could he not be with such a good nurse. -Marlene

  2. Hi Deb! You don't know me but I see your name on many of my sister-in-law's (Lynn Kallmann) e-mails. She sent me your blog address a while back because I'm a beader, too. So far I've only made jewelry, much of which I sell in a yearly all women art show/sale. I've been fortunate enough to sell quite a few of my pieces. I have also used a loom to weave beads, mostly for bracelets - I love doing that but, since I still have to work, don't have nearly as much time as I'd like to have to play with my beads! Anyway, you've inspired me to try painting with beads and I have a few ideas floating around in my head. Your blog has helped me to skip the idea of a light fabric and sent me directly to stiff felt. Thanks for the tip! I'll make sure to have Lynn let you know when I visit them...I'd love to meet you & talk beads! - Gayle
