Houses and the Evil Bead Lady
I worked on the Houses I want to present for the Louisiana Traveling Quilt. It is coming down to the wire in getting them ready to send. I got only one house and one tree done yesterday. One tiny tree..........aughhhh!
As you can tell, or maybe not, I am trying for low volume. Somewhat. I guess that means no brights and wild colors. We shall see.
And today I met Tracy for lunch and a trip to the Cajun Bead Store. We had a great time with Lisette and her beads. She admitted to stroking them when no one else was around. I admitted to stroking my fabric and Tracy had knowing look on her face, but didn't admit to anything.
I decided I needed to do an undersea quilt so I can add all the seaweed dangles on the edges. And use the beautiful seaglass colors.
Then the Evil Lisette showed me a beaded rose and I just knew I needed to make a rosebush quilt with beaded roses all over it. THEN..... she showed me some Southwest Kokopelli relics and I just knew I had to make one of those too!
Now I am going to have to restrict mmyself from the bead shop as well as the fabric shop and start counting my bead stash.
