Ginger used to do beading but she's developed weakness in her right hand and she is right-handed. It's affected her grip strength and dexterity. Also she's feeling less motivated to do her artwork since she's depressed.
It would be nice if we could find some craft she could do that was using things bigger than the little beads. They're just too small for her now.
This weekend was SO MUCH FUN!!! I love the new techniques I picked up and learned.
There are going to be some happy people next holiday! (or bday)
One best part? I don't know if I can do that.
Learning two entirely different approaches to working with beads in one weekend? Combining my love of textile techniques with beading? Learning more wire techniques than just how to make a ring? The ability to make a ring for $4 plus the price of a bead? Learning something that suddenly turns the beading approach into a mosiac of possibilities?
I don't know... it was just flat out cool.
Wow, Girty, that really does sound amazing!!
And did either of you see the dragon scarf on knitty? *drools*
grelf tricked me into logging in for a sec.
I'll be back once the hols are over.
*returns to frenetic knitting activity*
<laughs> Nice, Girty!

I think fleeb liked the hat. He wore it all day.
And he needs to post pictures of it.
