Yep, that's right. On my big, comfy couch. With my trusty companion, Season. I must admit I did tidy it up a bit. Usually I'm buried under pillows to create my little makeshift table to put my bead tray on. And that end table is typically piled high with beading essentials.
Tomorrow I am heading to the International Gem and Jewelry Show with my friend Lisa. This show has an eclectic mix of anything from enormous diamonds to cheap purses. Some years I find a lot of good semi-precious beads and freshwater pearls and other years I hardly buy anything. Last year I bought picture frames. See what I mean? Eclectic. This show will tide me over until Bead & Button in June. Now there's a show where I'm almost guaranteed to part with some cash.
Mark has been working hard to get his workshop in order. I was just in the basement with N. and all I can say is, "wow." He is so organized. I wish I could be that organized. I know he wishes I could be, too. :) Now that his workshop is situated I can put in my orders.
Any holiday weekend plans? We are staying home. Other than the bead show, we have a friend in town from Seattle who is coming to visit tonight and my very dear friend Andrea from Minnesota will be in town as well. I might also get together with my mom to learn how to make granny squares.
Have a safe, relaxing holiday weekend, everyone.
