Yesterday I spent a lovely spring day at Messiah College watching my older son compete with his school at the MASCA track meet. They did great! I am so proud of all of them. My son took 6 seconds off his best time for the 800m. The girls team took first place. Watching how fast these kids can run was just amazing. Today I am struggling a little as I did not apply sunscreen quite often enough. Fortunately I can stay out of the sun for a few days which will help.
When I got home yesterday, I found a package in the mail from Interweave. To my surprise and delight, I found the special edition of Beadwork's Favorite Bead Stitches inside. Even more to my surprise I found my "Pretty Picots" necklace had been included in this special edition. I am so honored to be included! I also see that my dear friend Lanai Kinsky had her beautiful Royal Amethyst Collar included as well. This is truly a lovely special edition with little advertising and LOTS(!!) of great beading projects. I love that it is divided into sections by bead stitch (hence the name, duh). I hope you will check it out and maybe learn a new stitch in the process.
