Oh look, Beads..........I'm easily distracted by new bead shapes and colors.
This will probably be my last show visit this Feb. I spent a couple of hours at The Best Bead Show visiting with a lot of my beading friends. It's a shame that we have about half an hour only once a year to catch up in person.
The nice thing about the Kino Show is that it is a small slice of what all of the different shows are like. It's a table (or two), Medium sized tents plus small tents or a couple of display tables of just about everything you'd see at all the other shows.
Today in Tucson was chilly, but not winter coat cold. It was overcast with a 30% chance of rain. Everyone was ready with their tarps in case it did start to rain.
Today I looked, touched and saw what was new. Shibori ribbon - beautiful, but not for me - too fragile and fussy. Two-holed triangles, "O" beads -- Oh yes... they need to hurry up with more production.
