It snowed again yesterday. Today it is warm enough so that the snow and detritus is melting and hitting the skylights in clinks and clanks . Tuesday's class went well, and I have a nice group of students. I wondered how things would go with both new and returning students, but it was just fine. The new students listened, and the returning students got right in to their projects. This week was learning how to string. Next week we will do chains, then peyote, then brick. I taught brick medallions last time, so this time I put together a simple bracelet in brick stitch. Seems I am working with browns and golds lately. The necklace I should finish today is in the same color tones.

Getting Ready for Class

I'm getting ready for my first class - a new session at the Senior Center in Granby. Because I have three new students and five returning students, I decided to add eight new projects, or one for each week of class. Week I is basic stringing and color, and there are actually three new classes. This is one of the projects, a continuous necklace with three strands of beads. A bit different for those returning to class
