This weekend I attended Gig's bead retreat on the homer spit. It was beautiful on the beach and there were tons of seals, otters and birds to observe along with the human wildlife having a VERY good time.  It was really fun to commiserate with fellow beaders, see all their projects, beaded bracelets, a gorgeous raven, some porcupine quillwork, and even a beaded dog bone. We ended up playing Cranium late into the night and I haven't laughed that hard in awhile. I learned from Gig how to do a good job on the wire wrap using head pins which I have always been iffy on at best. Heres my little finished project.  Thanks for all the fun gang! It was a pleasure.


  1. The weekend was so much fun, and for sure I will always remember the "Exorcist", how funny, you did such a great job on that one, makes m e giggle every time I think about it.How's the butterfly bag doing? I can't wait to see it when it's done.

    1. Finally working on the black background, I add two more butterflies so it's a total of 16. Hows is the Raven piece coming along? I still need to look into the stiff felt. Thanks for the tip!
