a little beading

so I went to this 2 day beading class with Robin Atkins through LaConner quilt museum last month and I just finished the piece i started after the class.

First let me tell you that Robin is an outstanding teacher!
she taught me so much during those two days and not just about beading but about teaching and how to be more in tune with your work process.

also how to work through a designing or creative slump, you bead through it.
just pick a spot and do something. a row fill in, something to get you into the frame of mind then it comes to you, bam,  just like that!

If you ever get the chance it is well worth it to take one of her classes. they are intensive and demanding but very well worth it!

anyway about the pouch...

I went on a trip to India last November and have been processing the experience ever since

I still cannot tell you exactly how I feel about the trip

other than it was equal parts beautiful, terrifying (the traffic) aggravating and filthy.

I'm glad I went but I’m not sure I would repeat the experience

 though I have placed it in the, I maybe persuaded, category from the, absolutely not! no.

and i used to be such an adventuresome creature

I wonder what happened?

Beautiful beading. Lucky you to have a class with Robin.

It's one thing to be adventuresome. It' quite another to have the experience and then decide not to further explore, but focus on something new or still better, to explore further the tried and true.
xx, Carol

The pouch is lovely. I have not tried serious beading like that but maybe some day.
