i have a need*

July 29, 2010

and it’s still for beads.
however, the need has changed
in that it has become more literal.

you see, i did another repeat on the shawl,

and these are all the beads i have left.

i have a couple more repeats to go,
and then a lace edging.
the bead store i go to has none,
and can’t get any until next month!
does anyone have roughly 324 miyuki seed beads?
size 6/0
color 135


and now, to counteract my craziness, a baby alpaca.

say hello to sally’s new baby jezebel.
i love that all the aunties came to see the new baby.

hopefully there’ll be a little baby boy alpaca next year . . .

. . . named steven.

seriously though,
send me beads.

    that shawl is GORGEOUS. i’ve bought beads online before (because i didn’t know about the local bead shop) from eebeads.com and artbeads.com. maybe somewhere else, too, but i can’t remember. i would love to go to the local shop next time you go, though–i’ve never been!
    hoping to stop by the shop tomorrow for a little bit, though a rush project will preclude my visiting for long. hope i see you there (OR FOR A RUN/WALK ONE MORNING.) (ahem.)

    ouch….uhmm i don’t have beads..sorry!! 😦

    Perhaps, if you don’t score the exact beads you need, you could integrate and nice light amber shade to compliment the beauties already in place? Other than that, that’s all I got…and the ability to go see Jezabel up close and personal, and give her some woobies from you 🙂

    I don’t know if they carry those beads, but there is a bead shop in Oakmont – MoonRise Beads (http://www.moonrisebeads.com/index.php). I’ve been there a couple of times, and the owner has always been very helpful. Good luck finding your beads!

    Good sources for beads: Earthfaire, Stone Mountain, and T&T trading (based in Michigan!) Also, Webs’ bead store recently went e-commerce I believe.

    Good luck!

    That shawl is so gorgeous — darn it, I do not need another shawl on my to-knit list!

    I don’t know if they carry the beads you’re looking for, but I’ve bought a lot of beads from artbeads.com before. Also, is the Bead Mine still open on the South Side?

    If I had beads, they would be yours. Jezebel wishes for you to know, however, that she hopes she has a little brother next year to name Steven. And, she’s doing her best Rockette kicks in your honor.

    Very interesting; I like the yarn color. Where did you get the beads before? Do they not have them/can’t order you more?
