And just look at this beautiful necklace that my sister Virginia designed and made! She gave it to me because I had the perfect outfits to wear it with.

Afghani Nomad Dress. The bodice is heavily beaded, and it is always a big hit at the show. And of course matching jewelry and lace shawls is always important. And Bruce and I even packed the Element. But there is still more to go in.
Bead & Button Show and I have to pack up my Element with all of the booth infrastructure and head out for points west. Tomorrow I will drive to Ohio and rest a day while I visit my parents and then on Tuesday I will head to Milwaukee for 5 days of beads. I have laundry to do and I have to figure out what outfits I am going to take and of course what knitting projects to take. I'll definitely take this one, plus my mystery socks and probably the Little Wing shawl and maybe the Fresh Ink Cardigan. That should keep me busy and keep me from getting yarn withdrawal while I am hanging out with all of those shiny objects.
