On to New Hobbies, Old Places, and New Friends

Handmade Beaded jewelry.
I took a weekend class at our annual Quilters of SC Retreat at White Oak.

These are the stiches we learned how to bead.

I learned how to make the bead encrusted button in the middle.

My newest friend Kira Bishop.
Kira's Dad is the new chef at White Oak Conference Center.  They moved here two months ago from Long Island, New York.  I invited her to join our class on Sunday and she made a beautiful necklace and a bracelet (and threaded my needle a "few"times).

This is the bead encrusted necklace I made.  I cannot figure out how to turn the pic.  Maybe my blog designer (aka daughter Gabby) can fix it.  I have one more chain of beads to add to the necklace rope (for lack of a better term).  The things that hang down from the pendant are called fringe.

I bet my granddaughters will like my newest hobby :)

Have you taken up any new hobbies or interests?  Tell me all about them in your comments.

Donna, thank you for sharing a beautiful birthday weekend with me.
I had so much fun with you at the retreat. Thank you for the wonderful birthday cake you brought so we could share it. I am so grateful that I have a friend like you who finds the time and energy to make me feel less alone on my birthday.
love
Rita
