Wonderful Bead Sale
Yesterday I drove into Chicago -- a drive that normally takes 40-45 minutes -- it took over 2 hours yesterday. Don't know where all the traffic came from -- even on a "bad" day it has never taken more than 1 1/2 hours. I went in to "sit" with 4 young grandsons. At one point during the day DD and I had just the youngest boy and so we stopped at a bead shop near her home that I have wanted to go to for ages --- well, the Gods were with me -- not only did we find a parking place but the shop was having a sale on colors they were no longer going to carry. I had very few tiny beads and well, there were literally baskets of size 15 -- all at $1.00 a tube. I picked out 21 of the colors I might want and not find later on -- so, I was in Heaven. If you notice, in the upper left corner there are tubes of "Salt and Pepper" which will be a great addition when I get to working on my "Black and White" piece. Also purchased a couple cabs and some nymo thread. The drive home took 40 minutes -- think I was floating on the clouds LOL. (Did get a few #11 beads while I was there too).
