One more thing...

before I leave for Iowa: I finished the "Green Goddess" this morning, as a display piece for my face cabs. She became lovely, I think. A wish for spring. Enjoy, and I hope to see some of you at Living History Farm in Urbandale, Iowa. Saturday, 10am-4pm.

Here it is....

The necklace made from my new kit "Pagoda Component"

Well, eleven of the kits, anyway :)
I'll have the new kits this Saturday in Des Moines, at Living History Farm. Bead Bash, anyone? People in Iowa--if you've seen something on the blog and want me to bring it--now's the time to e-mail me about it!! I'm spending the rest of the week packing and making kits, so if I'm not on here, that's why! See you Saturday :)

New Kits...

are almost ready:
A lovely little component piece to my Pagoda Pendant Kit. Hook it on a zipper, your purse, or make a necklace. Keep stitching and make a Kate bracelet! The sky's the limit on this one :)

Want to see what I made with these? Stay tuned!!!!

More cabs.....

these have a bit of a lunar feel to them:
One already went home with Mary. Can't wait to see what she makes with it!!

It may be snowing outside....

But it's Spring in my kiln: Egyptian Blue & French Vanilla, with a bit of purple & green thrown in for good measure :)

And more cabs:

New bracelet...

"loops" bracelet from the current Bead & Button magazine:
This one will be for sale at my shows. If it doesn't find a home by the end of 2010---it's mine, all mine :)

More glass cabs...

out of the kiln this morning:eclectic little group, isn't it?My favorite? The all seeing eye:

The shadow is me and the camera--pay it no heed :)

I think I'll be making more eyes--they're going to be great once you add a nice beaded bezel!

Saturday in Hastings....

I met with the Mid-Nebraska Seed Beader's group. We were taught how to make this bracelet: If you live near Hastings, you really should head on over to Plum Nelly's on 2nd Ave,
every month, last Saturday, 9:00 a.m. You'll have a great time. I always do :)
