    Wow this is a wonder. I like this so much. Don’t think I have patience for seed beads.
    My x-husbands family (mother) was from Adrian Michigan use to make trips there about 43 and 45 years ago when our daughter was only a baby. Have not been there for years. Nice place I am sure it has changed greatly. LOL.
