“A Beading we will go...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: Wishing all my beading friends here, and the Lima staff a very happy new year - it's been a very eventful year on many levels - while I am still with my same position as an Americorps site coordinator at an elementary school in Kent, WA, I'll be done this coming July and considering what next.

The owner of the house where I have had my apartment passed away last year, and a small group of us have been cleaning the house and reorganizing -

My dad passed away last month, and I got to see my siblings and other family members whom I hadn't seen in awhile, lots of tears and shared memories.

And a friend will come over to my reorganized apartment this weekend, she asked to do some beading with me, and she says she loves rocks and beads of the "more natural" kind. It gave me a good excuse to go thru the many packages and boxes of beads I have, and reorganize - lots of lovely ocean jasper, crazy lace agate, and other potential "partner" beads to pick from, including some cool shell beads in different colors and shapes, some fun seed bead mixes and ceramic pendants - she says she likes turtles, and I definitely have some ceramic pendants and gemstone ones for her to choose from, she said she wants to make a necklace!

    J Yee, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad was…even though it was a sad situation, it is a blessing to have been able to see your family. As the year comes to a close, I suppose it is a time of reflection AND looking to the future. What a year it has been! What a joy to have your friend come over to bead with you! Happy New Year to you and your friend…I know you will both make something beautiful!

    Happy New Year to all!

    Elis, thank you, and wishing the same to you and your family -

    I’m so pleased that my friend asked to come to my apartment and bead with me, she and her husband are pretty special people who have helped out with the cleanup of the house all year, and she doesn’t ask much for herself at all, so I am very pleased that she wants to do something fun like beading with me!! :)

    I’ve thought of you often and wondered how you were doing.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your Dad. You are in my prayers for comfort, peace and healing in your heart. *Hugs*

    Let me say, you haven’t lost your touch for phenomenal picks my friend! This is gorgeous! And has a touch of that “more natural” your friend was talking about. It’s wonderful that you’ve found someone to bead with!
    Stay in touch with us Joyce.

    Joyce, it is so lovely to have you and your exquisite picks back with us. What a full but trying year you have had, my dear. But … I can just picture you and your friend poring through your stash and chuckling at all the possibilities contained therein … especially those magical turtles. Have a wonderful adventure with your friend but you must warn her of the dreadful addictiveness of beading. Take care and stay well. I look forward to more of your beauties on this incredible site. They have been missed.
