I actually went to school with someone who browbeat everyone into finishing this traditional bus tour / drinking song - all the way down to one. She then tried to start over - but we all threw stuff at her. I will spare you that.

This week, we are off to Tucson, pawing through the beady treasures, digging up what we can for your beading pleasure - trying to second guess the hot new trends for this coming year. (Our technique for this is coming across something, falling in love with it, and then thinking, "oh, you know what - someone else will probably like this too.") This week - to keep you amused till we get back - we have 99 new colours of Delica 11/0s. Which brings our total number of active Delica 11/0s up to 1,020. Just think - over 1,000 different colours, finishes and shades. Kind of blows your mind, doesn't it?
So I'll keep this short and sweet because, after all you have 99 colours of delicas to dig through! Stay tuned, and I'll try and keep you updated on what wonders we see!

As always, wonderful things where ever you look! I leave you to explore at your leisure.
