Oh the weather outside is frightful, but despite the SNOW and blizzardlike conditions, it was a good day. I met Susan and Action Hero Melissa at Pine State Biscuits for lunch, and boy, them biscuits were TASTY. Here’s what I had:
BUT I DIGRESS. The biscuit was sublime, but even more exciting was getting a copy of Susan’s new book, Bead Simple. It is gorgeous and weighs a ton and is crammed full of really great beading projects (and no, none of that crazy beading stuff from the 70s). I am excited to hawl out my little pliers and give these patterns a shot. Really, it is beautiful, and there are lots of basic projects (I am a novice) and thorough instructions. Not only are the photographs yummy, but the illustrations are really nice as well. I am really thrilled to have my paws on this book!
Check out Susan’s blog for more info on the book. She has set up a flickr page for projects, and she’s doing an interactive reading of sorts at Powell’s on Monday, April 7, at 7:30pm.
