While on retreat this weekend with 35 other beaders on Vashon Island, I am amazed, as always, with the artistic creativity of these women. Gathering with like-minded artists is energizing, to say the least. Already my little notebook is full of tips, techniques that I want to try, and a list of projects I want to make.
I'm teaching (well, really sharing) a short class on mini-purses that I adapted from a magazine (so it is clearly not my own original design, just the decorative patterns that I added), but anticipate that my students will teach me ever so much more than I teach them.
My goal on retreat: to finish up a couple of incomplete projects.....so I'll be free and clear to start some new ones!
