Busy Busy Busy

I just looked at the date of my last post and was amazed. Didn't realise it was nearly two weeks since I wrote anything.
We went away for a few days on the Melbourne Cup "Long Weekend". Spent some quality time with our son, DIL and grandson at their camp site at Paradise Valley on the McAllister River near Glenmaggie. It was a very relaxing weekend.
Last Sunday was the Bead Society meeting and as it was the last meeting before the Bead Expo there were a few "housekeeping issues" to be sorted out.
This weekend is the biggest Beading weekend in Victoria, with the Bead Society of Vic Annual Bead Expo taking place from Friday to Sunday. We will be setting up all day tomorrow and then once the Expo starts there will be no rest for the wicked, I am sure.
Fiona Hammond, who I have featured previously, is coming to stay at my house for a couple of nights and I daresay there will be a bit of a gabfest going on then.
Fiona and I both have pieces in the Bead Challenge and the Showcase 2008 Members Exhibition and I am looking forward to seeing her work in the flesh.
Once the Bead Expo commences, I will try to put up a couple of pictures of my work, but cannot do so until Friday.
In the mean time, yesterday I had TWO sales on my etsy shop!! One was for the instructions for the Lolly Pink Choker shown above and the other was for a crochet neckwarmer. Good stuff, since they were sales in US dollars and I need these for my USA bead purchases! The Aussie dollar is at a really low rate which makes my bead purchases really scary at present.

Ok - I'll admit - I only skimmed your text after I saw the necklace...it is amazingly beautiful!
I'll go finish the article now :)
