I just had to post these pictures of a fetish doll made by Peggy Kemp, who is organizing the bead embroidery workshop I'm teaching here on San Juan Island March 30-April 1.
Isn't she just as fun as can be? Her name is "13 Fishes and a Turtle". I think Peggy's intent is that she and the 12 other students in the class are the fishes. Am I the turtle? She didn't say, but if I am, it's OK with me.
We still have 3 openings in the class. Won't you join us? We are going to bead, learn, share, eat, shop, and have a blast. The island will be perfect by then... flowering, ornamental trees, daffodils, hellebore, and beautiful green everywhere by that time. Of course we won't have a lot of time to enjoy the out of doors because we'll be beading. That's OK though... when I remember to remind everybody to stretch, we can at least get up and look out the windows.
