Fun at the Quilt Show

Jeanette, Kathy and I had a great time at the quilt show.  By the time we had spent all day taking classes we only had time to shop at the vendors, so I don't have any pictures of the quilts. I will show you the pieces I worked on. I know it doesn't look as though I accomplished much, I did learn a lot. Nancy Eha is a wonderful teacher and if you are interested in beading and ever get a chance to take one of her classes I would highly recomend it.

I spent all day stitching on the beads then when I got home I took them all off except for the grapes. She had kits made up for us and I really didn't think the various colors did justice to my block so in ten mintures my block was almost back to square one.
The second day was the beaded dragonfly and Sashiko.

I was super happy with how these turned out so I won't be  doing any ripping here. It helped that she let us pick the color of beads for our Sashiko. This was really fun and I know I will be doing more of this in the near future.
The following pictures are some of her bead work.
Here is the beading queen herself in all her glory.
I also had to buy her book  Bead Creative Like Crazy. Even if I never do another beading project her book is worth it just to have in my library.

Lastly here are my very good friends Kathy and Jeanette with the gifts I made for them for all they had to put up with.

I'm usually a bit ho-hum about beading - take it or leave it. But that beaded teapot is to die for!!!
