Just a note to say how grateful I was for RCB "back in the day" and
how sad it is to know that a wonderful woman is gone. Hugs to all who
used to come here. I hope we can revive RCB and get to know each
other all over again :)
In my hand I have a piece of a package that has your address on.
Alas for the life of me I cannot remember what was in the package.
Getting old, VBG. We must have exchanged something but I do remember
doing a beaded pen for a Vicki.
Nice to see you here.
What is everyone making at present? I have just finished five bead embroid
ery pendants. A large centre stone, and simple surrounding stitches. I am m
eeting up with friends from 45 years ago.We are having time in Australia to
gether. One is fron Christchurch and she really needs the break. In 1966 w

I'm working on a beaded spirit doll, making polymer clay lentil beads
and hand beads, and hand beads in ceramics this month. Also doing some
bead embroidery around a pc face to make into a necklace. And I have a
growing pile of beads, faces, and buttons in ceramics waiting for me
to have a glazing week and do them all up. I'm enjoying ceramics, but
the breakage rate is SO much higher than pc!! I'll get some pics next
week to share.
I'm making them in ceramics now, and some of those I coat with PMC
silver and refire. I love them! Gotta make more, and I have a pile of
about 100 that I'm finishing up now.Only about a dozen are silver yet,
gotta get more PMC and make it into slip. Its always something! Boy
howdy, is metal and ceramic harder to drill into a bead than polymer

to put your holes in as you go.
I still keep fondling the hands you
