You can tell when she is ready to get down to work. She whips out that scrunchie, ties back her hair and pours out her beads. There are several in the class who are already expert beaders, but most of us are just learning. And what we are doing is awesome.
I was not sure I would be liking this bead thing, but once I saw the tools, I was hooked. My pliers have spring action cushioned handles. And the tweezers are fine tipped and true. But the best of all tools is the scoop. I LOVE that scoop! I knew this was mmy craft if it had scoops.
Tracy just likes it for the colors of the beads. And I have some new ideas for my quilts, some cool effects and awesome dimension.

So stay tuned and see what the new beading experiences bring.
