Despite the 4:30 a.m. start I had successful plane beading. I carry all of my tools in my JudiPatuti tool tote (she calls them thread catchers but what does she know?) that and a bead mat and I'm good to go.
She insists she will get up in time to go with me to the Alexis Bittar sample sale at 8:30 a.m. Tomorrow, we shall see.
