Hi! I've been beading for a grand total of about four months now!...and I'm hooked. I always said I'd never like beading because my old eyes could not take the close work with tiny little beads, but it's amazing what you can overcome when the "fever" hits! I love freeform bead embroidery, and am slowly learning off-loom beadweaving. I'm eager to learn from all this experience here.
