Bead Store Bonanza!

(This is my post for Jan. 5. Computer issues yesterday--only semi resolved today, but at least I could upload pictures today!)

Met up with Yarn Addict Annette and her mom at San Gabriel Bead yesterday, and found some "treasures" for my crazy quilt project. I am especially fond of the variegated rattail--as much as this stuff has driven me nuts in the past, I couldn't resist buying a few yards to couch down on my tie-blocks.

The plastic boxes hold small and medium sized flip-top boxes, which will be perfect for transferring those beads in plastic baggies into. I have very little desire to be chasing beads everywhere.

The buttons are a great find, they're all glass--very appropriate for using with the Glass Man's ties, no? The only problem I'm beginning to see is that there may have to be an entire work station set up for this project, since there are so many parts to it!

I always had a good time visiting the San Gabriel Bead Company. Too many ideas and beautiful things floating around in that space!
