One last quilt picture from Moutain Quiltfest

I thought this was an absolutely beautiful wall hanging. The surfer girl and her board are all done in beads. It was simply amazing. I have not attempted to do anything with beads in my quilts yet. Some day I hope to give it a whirl. A friend from Church told me that she has lots of beads and that we will have to get together some time and see what we can come up with. I also bought a kit to make a scissors fob with beads. I will have to get that out sometime and see if I can make it. I have visions of beads flying all over the place. Any advice for a first time beader?
What are your plans for the weekend? I am hoping to do a little quilting. I want to machine stitch my Guild BOM's and I have my Round Robin hand quilted - just have to add the binding. Maybe I can get the binding on that this weekend.
I am also going to a Women's Retreat with my daughter-in-love Rachel on Saturday. The retreat is at her Mom's Church and Rachel will be the musician. I am looking forward to the retreat.
I would love to hear what you are doing for the weekend!

I use a piece of paper toweling (cut to size) in the top of a cottage cheese or sour cream container. It controls the rolling beads and makes them easier to pick up on a needle. ---and it is less expensive than something you can buy! I do a fair amount of repair beading on formal wear --- quite frankly, I don't particularly enjoy it.

Thank you for the suggestion. That sounds great and I will certainly give it a try. **Pam**
