The fun was not over when Madrona ended! I spent two days in Phoenix, AZ at my mother-in-law’s house with my sister-in-law, where I could relax, swim, ride a bicycle and enjoy family time. Then I flew to Santa Clara, CA for Stitches West. A huge event, many teachers, big market and taught 3 classes in Portuguese Style of Knitting! Not a lot of time to sight see but lots of fun.
We were there for the release of Betsy Beads book by XRX. A book that inspired me for years to come, since I am as left-brained as the author! Betsy encourages you throughout the book with fun, simple and great useful projects! I read the book on my flight back to Columbus and immediately start knitting some projects as I got home.
Yesterday I went to the Gems and jewelery Show here in Columbus,OH and bought BEADS! another addiction? I hope not! Tons of ideas are crossing my mind today! Wait and you will see some of them at my new website!
