Potomac Had a Sale

And I bought a lot of swarowski type crystals. Time to put them to use.

Russian Finds

A Lithuanian company had a sale on Russian kits, with the proceeds going to Ukraine. Needless to say, I had to support this. So all this is what I got.

Potomac Beads July

This box came within a couple of days of the first. Different stuff, but I truly need to find some time.

First Bead Box

I started this subscription box this month. It's enough beads for three projects; the instructions and accessories; and a bit more. Let's see how I like it.

Added Beads

I finished my cozyblue shadow flower. I think the beads were needed to break it up a bit.

Bead Bling

As a crafter, what do you bring back from Prague? Beads! I bought a LOT of beads. You can see them below. They are from four different bead stores within walking distance of our apartment. Not a bad haul.

Little More Sparkly

The week I was in Munich, this didn't get much work.  I didn't bring it with me because beads are a pain when you're moving around.  I did get a little stitch time with it after we got back.  It's just a little more sparkly now.

Last of El Artesano

El Artesano recently moved a couple of doors down and behind an accessory shop, but they still have plenty to sell.  Here's a picture of our last haul from there before leaving.

Bead Trip

Since Memorial Day is a day off at the embassy but not one in Uruguay in general, we went shopping.  There's a possibility that we won't get back to the local bead shop, so we stocked up while we were there.  Here's a picture of our haul.

I went back to the bead shop yesterday and bought more.  Some are being sent to the States for an exchange, but I'm keeping some, too.  Some of the nicer finds: small coins with Elizabeth II on them, colored wooden beads, some twisted manganese blue bugle beads, and star shaped glass beads.

On Friday, we were walking along Montevideo's main drag - 18 de Julio - and came across this little hole in the wall bead shop.  It had lots of stuff packed in, from strings of polished uneven gemstones to seed beads to novelty stuff.

And this is what I bought, for under eight dollars.  The bag of seed beads is half a kilo, and the baggies had a lot of beads in them - each of the baggies under a dollar.  I'll definitely be going back when I have more time.
