This week has seen the beginnings of all the BOTB 2014 entries being posted on FB! What a lot of eye candy for one such as myself to drool over! My goodness.... such an incredible amount of talent, creativity and artistry from all around the globe and all in one place! I am marveling at the spectacular use of color, texture and different stitches and techniques. I won't blabber on about the pieces, although I could..., but instead I thought I would share some of my favorites thus far with you, and let them speak for themselves. Hope you enjoy drooling over them as much as I have! :) Ready to drool? Here we go....
Six more to come tomorrow.... I know, I know... I'm a tease!
Until then, Bead True to Yourself!

Hey everyone! As some of you know, I was pretty ill back in Oct-Dec of last year, and I had major surgery in December. At sixty years of age and that being my very first surgery ever (other than a tonsillectomy when I was 7) it was rather traumatic on my body overall and its taken my a full six months to get back to a semblance of feeling like "ME"! The down side of that is that I have had to put many things on the back burner during this recovery period... this blog being one of them. I apologize for that and I hope to rectify it as quickly as possible, beginning today. You have all been so patient with me that I thought you deserved a freebie! :)
The free tut is a simple and quick design and it uses size 11/0 seed beads, Super Duo's and the new two holed Diamond Silky Czech glass beads. The Silky's are available at www.etsy.com/shop/AriaDesignStudio owned by Lisa Kan, and she just got a shipment of new colors in her shop! You should check them out. I named this little diddy Fleur de' Lies Chain because as I was working it up, I was reminded of little fleur de' lies'. I hope you enjoy it and have fun playing and experimenting with it.
Again, my apologies for being absent for so long.... hope to get back to a regular posting schedule very soon.
Remember-- Bead True to Yourself!
