Happy Fall Y'all!

It's fall here in the south and one of my favorite fall activities is to look at the changing of the leaves. It is so spectacular! I just wish they would stay on the trees a little longer.

My good friend Kathy and I headed out Saturday to Rock Hill, SC to a bead show. OMG! This was nice! To touch on jade, amethest, onyx, tiger's eye - it was heavenly. I like to run my fingers through all these beads and just feel them. Now, of course, some of these beads were VERY expensive so I did not dare to even touch - LOL! This was a small show, held in a conference center, but it was nice in that it wasn't crowded and you could really interact with the vendors. I did come home with a nice assortment of beads, rocks and pendants so maybe during the holiday breaks, I can get some necklaces/bracelets made. Poor Kathy, she had mentioned before we left that she might need to take a rolling tote. I laughed thinking "how could she buy so many beads that it would be so heavy she wouldn't be able to carry them". Well, let's just say, she did and she'll bring a rolling tote next year - LOL!

After we spent 3 1/2 hours at the bead show, we headed to the Stitch and Frame Shop. This is a cute little cross stitch shop in Rock Hill. I haven't visited this shop in several years but it was filled to the brim with shop models and lots of goodies. I came home with La D Da's Mocking Bird piece, all kitted up. This was only because of the shop model - they are my weakness. So, this will be my next project which I might get a chance to start on this week.

Have a great rest of the weekend. More to come later......

That piece is beautiful. The bead show sounds like it was fun too and I can't wait to see what you make!
