Issue 37 (Sep/Oct 2011) Fall Issue

Welcome friends to issue #37
      Wow, the summer went by so quickly! Now it is back to school time, nights are getting cooler time, and let's get ready for Halloween time! We have two delightful Halloween themed projects for you. Ronit shares a really fun & ghostly Peek-a-Boo! Necklace panel with matching Earrings; wear them with the Black Cats in the Pumpkin Patch Bracelet. Michelle played with her favorite tiny 15 Delicas and a few pinch beads to make her Copper Ladder Bracelet. Sandy wows us again with a fabulous seed bead collar. I have designed the next in the Spice Series; Garlic Salt and Garlic Powder. Barbara's Cobalt Treasure Bracelet is sure to be a favorite. Decorate a U-Drop Crystal, make several for gifts, and get a jump on your holiday list. Diana asks - Turquoise anyone? Quick to stitch project uses just a few stone heishe or disk beads, great use for odds and ends.
      Best wishes & full bead dishes, Deb Moffett-Hall - Editor
