And now for challenged beading, the kit goes to . . .

Don't confuse challenged beading with the beading challenged. And no, Juls, regardless of what you think, you are most definitely NOT beading challenged. I've seen some of your finished pieces. And Clara, I'm actually sending you a kit for bead weaving, but you know how to do this. I know you do because I taught you how. So there you have it, beaders. Only two kits being mailed out, to two of my dearest beady friends. And they are both very passionate about everything they do, not just beading. I'm very privileged to have these two ladies in my life.

Every once in a while, there will be other challenges with freebies. I truly enjoy it when the blog becomes interactive, so don't be shy -- drop a line or two when you have time. You might just get something nifty in return!

Today is GG's birthday. Her mom is visiting her for a while, which is a great birthday present for her. I'm wishing her a very happy birthday and hope all of her beady friends do likewise. I won't see her until November, but we'll celebrate then.

I've got beads in those colors. Hmmm . . . . I am so ready for cooler, dryer weather. How is this for a great palette? This was taken Thanksgiving 2005 at Lost Maples State Park in Vanderpool, Texas. It was absolutely gorgeous, the weather was perfect and I didn't even mind sleeping on the ground.

I'm working on a necklace that was published in Beadwork magazine a couple of years ago. I'm using it to showcase one of my hubby's lamp work beads. I'm to the point of embellishing, and will post a picture either here or on my website when it is finished. Ooo, beading something for me! What a novel idea!

In your 9/11 post, the link to Beadwork Magazine is broken. Please fix it so I can see what you are referencing.

Hi Carol
I have fixed the link, which is just a generic link to Beadwork. The project I am working on is Liz Smith's Scheherazade necklace, in the December/January 2006 issue.
