Break is over!

My little break from beading didn't last long at all!  I had volunteered to teach a class at the first ever Bead Heaven Bead Retreat at A Day Away Retreat in Boyd, Texas (just a hop on the farm to market road from me). The ladies  were disbelieving of how far I drive to spend time with them on Tuesday evenings. It does take all of 45 minutes to get there but the route is very easy and worry free. They had a little trouble with the backroads (they are fortunate the roads  were paved)  but that was not an issue for me since I grew up on them.  Kids in the area are often accused of "burning up the backroads" after they get their permits. There is alot of nostalgia for me that goes hand in hand with these tangled country roads  but I digress....lets just save that for another time.
I taught a beaded toggle and loop and Geri, the owner of Bead Heaven in Watauga, provided kits for the ladies free of charge (the class I offered for free as well).
This is Geri working away.

We took a few pictures but as you know you always miss someone- even if it is just the camera-woman.

 I did the best I could and managed to get in one of the photos thanks to Ruby (our Hostess).
Here is a shot of the great room and all the great beaders  you can also see the alpacas outside.
It was awesome to get to spend time with Arden and wish her a Happy Birthday.
I was heartwarming to share the afternoon with these wonderful ladies (and our host Micheal and hostess Ruby).
I hope you are blessed today by the friendship of other too.

What a nice space to work in! And I hope next time they at least pay your gas..if we could spirit you away for one of the Midsoutheast Beaders Retreats, you get food, board, and travel expense! Plus stay with us and play the rest of the time....
