Snow and Beading...a perfect combo!
What I did during the Tulsa Snowmageddon...bead, of course!
The snow was deep on Carl's patio but inside he was watching hunting shows and I was beading.
I had a limited selection of seed beads at his house but I remembered I had the little red lampwork beads from the Oklahoma Bead Society bead swap in January.
I combined those with the black and red seed beads and a few inexpensive butterflies from Hobby Lobby which I also happened to stick in my purse before the storm. Voila! Beading project! I didn't have findings with me so I beaded a bumpy peyote necklace and clasp to go with it. Very comfy around my neck.
To fill up the rest of my time, I spent some time learning to weave a netting stitch.
