5 Years!!!!

Wow, it seems like yesterday that we opened Bedecked and Beadazzled and here it is 5 years and 2 locations later.  Where does the time go?  What will be next?

You know I am always thinking and planning and trying my hardest to develop fun adventures for us.  There are so many in my head and in the heads of the girls I lovingly call my Board of Directors.  Thank you all for your support.

To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we invited Julia Snyder for the weekend.

Saturday we stitched our Anniversary Bee canvas designed exclusively for us by Colors of Praise!

This piece is just chock full of really, really cool dimensional techniques.  Love it!

Each of the ladies was welcomed to class with an Easter Basket full of threads and chocolates.  What can I say, I like cute.

Julia does great close-up demonstrations to make sure we all understand exactly what she wants us to do.

This is the wing of the bumble bee.  A piece of gold wire, folded and slid into Flair, then shaped with a pull here and a twist there.  How cool is that.  Think about all those pretty flower petals we can make!

Day two was an embellishment day. Bring a canvas and allow Julia to pick threads and stitches.  Oh the fun!

It looks like most of us were in the mood for smaller canvases this time.  Maggie's Platforms and Paws is a fun choice for Julia.  Rows of Detatched buttonhole form the flower.

Since it was Palm Sunday, Linda came to class in the spirit of the season, Bunny teapot by Shelly Tribbey complete with matching bunny and carrot magnets and her own one of a kind scissor fob.

 Can you tell how much fun we had?  Check out the smiles!

In between all the fun and girl time Palma found time to get some serious stitching in on her new series of Melissa Shirley Christmas crackers!

There was even a little silly Tai Chi in the front room. One never knows what we will do.

Thanks again, for making this celebration extra special.  Love you all.
