Andra of Andra’s Joyful Journey should soon receive her bead soup. The bead brew, boxed and in the mail, is as exciting to send as to receive. I can hardly wait to see what Andra makes from it.
Since I turn — at the lathe — you can guess that there will be wood in the package. In an email with Andra I learned she likes to bead embroidery. This has led me, in turn, to read and pay attention to a new category of bead creation. Yes, I’d seen books on bead embroidery before but I’d never known anyone who can actually do what I see in the books. Reading Andra’s blog and seeing “Victorian Splendor” makes me pay attention to this style of beading.
Right now I have started to read Heidi Kummli‘s book “The Spirit of Bead Embroidery” (2012). We’ll see how it all turns out!
