beads, beads, beads..... and a quilt.

Jenny and I went to an expo at the stuttgart messe today! and it was so much fun, I'll let her tell you all about it because I just want to show you my goodies! this is a pile of some of the stuff I got. If I had known what I was going to, then my wallet would have been stuffed just a little bit better...



Also! My dad got back from Africa yesterday and surprised me with these lovelies when I came home from the expo...



He bought them from a lady in the market who said she had made them herself! They made of paper (magazine I think) and are so cool. (His only request was that I keep them out of my mouth. Apparently I tend to chew on my jewelry....?)

But in other news I quilted my Anna Maria Horner quilt. All that's left now is the dreaded binding...

Awesome! I miss being able to shop in person for beads. I still haven't made it to that bead store in Stuttgart...
