Oh, I could be in trouble. Serious, serious trouble. Up until now, bead shopping has consisted of wandering one aisle of either Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Recently, a friend told me about two different stores, one to the north & one to the south, that sell nothing but beads. Today, I went north.
Oh! Em! Gee!!
It's a dammed good thing my kids were sitting in the car waiting for me. If not for that, I'd still be in that store, 8 hours later.
I am SO going to take a jewelry making class! Right after I finish knitting the beads I bought today into the donation shawl.
And of course, no photos. I haven't made enough progress on the shawl to bother and by themselves, the beads don't look all that special. I think they are going to look fantastic once knit into the shawl though.
Oh, by the way, the name of the northern bead store is Beads on Parade.
