Buon Giorno! I have been up since 4:30 a.m. for the third morning in a row! I love to see a pretty sunrise but this is ridiculous.

The pictures above are the projects for the Beading by the Bay Retreat in San Francisco in March, 2010 with Marcia DeCoster, Jean Campbell and me. Here is the website for all the info you need: Thank you Marcia with helping me with the directions on how to post the photos and link.

Today is a busy day. I am off to Iowa tomorrow to teach at Your Design Ltd. I am looking forward to returning. I had such a lovely time last year with all the gals. So today I am printing, collating and packing.

I just finished a lovely book, The Glassblower of Murano by Marina Fiorato. Good read, particularly if you have been to Venice and Murano. The author really captured the city.

Off to pack!


  1. I ordered the book for my Kindle. Sounds like a great read.

  2. Ciao!!!! E' per me un piacere sempre guardare le tue creazioni, così piene di eleganza, così legate alla storia della mia Italia...
    Io mi chiamo Jolanda e sono prima di tutto una pianista e poi, per hobby una "beader":-)
    Spero tanto tu possa venire in Italia ancora, mi piacerebbe tanto incontrarti e magari giocare con le "beads" insieme.
    Un abbraccio dall'Italia
