Hi, I just joined your website. I love to bead. I am disabled and this is the only thing that keeps me from going insane! No really, I can't get out and do the things I used to do so beading has really helped me. I live in Mesa, Arizona and yes it is really hot here now. But it is a dry heat and I do enjoy the summers. I do not like cold weather now since my injury. Anyway, I hope to get lots of fun patterns from all of you. I look forward to browsing.
