Happy Birthday Beading!
I still dabble on the bead loom, and only in the past year have I began to take an interest in stitches other than the peyote stitch. I love the Russian Leaf stitch, and I have grown quite passionate about the St. Petersburg Russian Chain stitch with tiny little 15/0 beads.
Tomorrow I am taking my first bead workshop ever. I have always been persistent on training myself with my beads, but I'm taking a leap and hope that I can learn from another long time beader and fashion artist, Huib Petersen. I have to admit, I haven't been that inspired by Herringbone Stitch since I have taught myself this month, but I figure this will open new doors.
2010, look out for great new bead designs to come! (Including beaded blob accents that are in the works!)
