wo weeks ago I taught my half day workshop Beaded Spider with Beaded Web for The River Valley Quilters in Woodbury, MN. The entire class had no or very little beading experience. Last night I presented my lecture Beyond Bling: Using Beads as Vocal Points on Quilts. I was thrilled and delighted that half of the students brought their finished spider and web to the lecture for Show and Tell. Each spider, like it’s maker, had a distinct personality
Mary Ellen Sax created a luscious mini crazy quilt around the block. Noticed she added lace, embroidery stitches, ribbon embroidery, and fringe. She even has it on a hanger that can sit on a shelf. What a great idea!
