Beading UGH!!!

I just have to let you know that I really HATE beading!!! I worked on my Cinderella piece this afternoon and I finished the beading on the castle. I have to say this is the most tedious job you could possibly do!! I have to say though, if you have to bead then you MUST buy a Tacky Bob. If you haven't used one..they are fabulous. They have sticky surface on both side where you can just pour your beads onto them and they stay in place!!! They only move when you pick them up with your needle. It made beading Cinderella very easy!!!

I worked on Cherokee Child yesterday. I am about 1/2 way finished with page 5!! I am so excited. My goal is to finish it by the end of the year. I just love this design. I looked at her and realized I stitched her little hand yesterday.

I am off to the retreat tomorrow. I finished the thank you notes today. I have kitted everything up and just about ready to start packing things up. I went to the grocery store for DH so he will have food to eat while I am out of town. All I have left to do is load up the truck. Then I am off to pick up Becki in Springdale. We are going to stop in Ft. Smith so I can see my grandma who is still in the hospital. Then we are going to pop over to a couple of really good used book stores. After that...we are off to the stitchers garden for their stitch in. I am not sure where we will spend the night. We plan on driving until we get tired!!!!!
