New Alice's Garden flowers...........

 ...........have been made and are ready for the upcoming fall bead shows.
 These are always so much fun to make because they are so bright and cheerful.
Plus I can decorate them in the wildest of ways.

Another customer request.

 This is another bracelet and earring set that was requested while I was at Stitches Midwest.  She saw something else I had made with this type of bead and wanted some made up for herself. 
It was really strange yesterday it took almost all day to make this bracelet because I took it apart so many times.  I just could not get something I liked at first.  I am very happy with it now but believe it or not it was difficult.
Of course there needed to be some earrings to go with and these little guys emerged.

I Have been working.

 I really have.  Since we got home earlier in the week from Chicago I have been working on special orders for several people who were at the Stitches Midwest show. 
 A customer saw a set of beads and asked if I could turn it into a bracelet and earrings.  I can always do that so here they are.
I liked that I got to use some of the new beads and bead caps that I got while at Bead and Button.

Another Alice's Garden piece...........

 ............will be headed out tomorrow to Schaumburg, IL.  I have to say that our trip to the ISGB Gathering in Washington was fabulous and hectic and exhausting and fantastic.  I will have to try and fill you in more on that later, because we are headed out again first thing in the morning.  This time to the Chicago area and Stitches Midwest. I finished up this Alice's Garden piece just in time this afternoon to pack it and take it with us.
This new piece is called Alice's Garden - Caterpillar.  I have wanted to get this made since I was at Bead and Button in June.  The metal flower pieces are some that I got while at the show.
