On my way home this afternoon I pulled into the plaza with my LYS (out of habit), but was reluctant to go in; I was just there yesterday and I was fairly certain they didn’t restock overnight so I figured nothing was going to catch my eye. Not wanting to make my stop in vain I ventured a little further down the plaza where I stumbled across this fabulous little shop, Beadapalooza.
If you are into beading I’m sure this would be your little spot of heaven. I, though, am not really the beading type. However….I have seen many fabulous beaded stitch markers. Enter my train of thought: “a little wire, some flashy beads, how hard can this be? I’ve got wire cutters at home. I’ll be set.” Ten dollars later I’ve left the store with 10m of silver wire and 8 well-chosen Swarovski beads. (No, sadly $10 will not get you the real thing).
All set up with what I assume are the necessary materials for making stitch markers. The beads, wire, cutters, pliers and the largest size needle that I plan to use them on. (Portable internet just incase I feel myself going very astray).
