Day One was Cascading Leaves with Leslie Frazier.
I knew that really wanted to take a class with her, and it was difficult to choose which of her classes I wanted to take, for Leslie's work is beautiful and elegant. I finally did settle on Cascading Leaves (my motto: Be true to your first choice)
The leaves are a beautifully formed using herringbone stitch, and they are attached to a light and airy netting to form a lariat that can be 'interwoven' by the leaves.
Day two was Duomos Romantico, with my personal beading hero, Marcia DeCoster. I took the Master Class with Marcia last year, and I just love her sensibilities and easy elegance.
BUT..I finally GOT IT!!! Something clicked this time, and I am now confident using CRAW.
This picture shows my bead mat during class. I have completed two of the components, and have them attached. By the end of class, I had three done and attached. Maybe I want to finish this bracelet first..... More to come.
