I finished the bead piece and inkle weaving this past week and am in love with it. I want to work on a prototype bag to use with these materials this week. I'll have to figure out how to attach and secure the beaded work to the bag and the basic design of the bag itself. In the mean time I'm hunting for some more cross stitch patterns to make a new beaded project.
I really excited with this work but feel guilty for ignoring my Macomber. Ah, so many looms so little time.. yet I keep hearing people tell me they can't retire cause they'll be bored to death. I'm really looking forward to having enough time to play around although I don't want to wish my life away, I do know that when the time comes I'll be ready and willing.

That bead-woven flower is adorable! I can's wait to see how you incorporate it all. Don't you just love taking elements of this and that and figuring out how to put them together into something special?

You do such a nice job of matching colors! I love the bead design that you did.

Wow, just a perfect compliment to each other! Don't let it worry you-the only people who are bored after retirement, are the same ones who got bored before!!! It is great to be retired!

Can't wait to see your finished piece, both the inkle weaving and your bead weaving are wonderful!
