I've been working on something of an adventure this past year. I think for most people it would have taken a month or two - but as with everything ART related in my life it had to fit into the little nooks and crannies of time left to the mother of five busy and extremely talented children. (Biased? Why yes I am.)

Announcing my new DVD workshop 

In this workshop I will teach you the basic techniques for embellishing fabric with beads including
sewing one bead on at a time
sewing beads in a solid line
curving, joining, or splitting a line of beads
sewing on chunky beads
making funky stacks
creating a beaded bezel to hold a cabochon
adding bead to the top of a finished quilt with no knots or mess on the back!

To celebrate the launch of this new DVD a number of my very favorite artists are posting reviews on their blogs over the next month. Please stop by each one and see what they have to say.

Congratulations on your book! I hope it is wildly successful! You're a huge inspiration to me - just when I think I can't squish a little art time into my schedule, I cruise by your blog - and get going again!
