My cherished Turbo Felting Board did me proud. I whizzed through the felting demos like a breeze. The Felted Rose Lariat whipped up in no time. Tonight at the Felted Bangle Bracelet class we were able to "bang put" those lovelies and bead them, in a short class thanks to that sharply corrugated surface. Though I sold a couple, I fear many remain to ship home.
Two brand-new beaders showed up for tonight's class. They were successful in their undulating peyote and hand felting a bangle bracelet. Yippee. Both were friends of Angela's. Recall that Angela is one of two people I met last year over the phone for a magazine interview. Then she had a horribloe car accident and was not expected to survive. Well, here she is, right, these many months later. Today she is vibrant and bubbling with joy and enthusiam and recovering.
Tomorrow is the last day of this amazing event. I'll be teaching the Harlequin (african helix) project that made sucha hit in Japan. Afterwards we all go collect our artwork from the exhibits. Hope we sneak a quick visit-with-each-other in before we all head home. There is much buzz about the bead aspect of next year's event.
