My favorite bead store in Friday Harbor is having huge sale this week. So on Tuesday, I hopped on the inter island ferry and came home with this stash. Clearly one of my winter projects has been determined by this purchase. But I can’t think of a nicer way to spend the rainy days and nights of January and February in the Northwest. For me, working with these beautiful, bright colors and with beads that sparkle in the light is clearly a way to fight the winter blues.
