It's been over a year since I last posted here! In the meantime, I finished the 6 turtle quilts for Bead Artists against Breast Cancer, wherein $2,865 was raised for breast cancer research this year for a total of nearly $18,000 over the past 6 years. In addition, I worked on the Rotterdam in SE Alaska all summer as a travel guide; it was a fantastic experience and one I hope to repeat again.
The new guidelines for the 2011 bead quilts have been posted on my website ( http://shanigansbeadshenanigans.com ); the theme this year is the hand, as in "Caring hands beading together to help find a cure for breast cancer." Join us!
