| Beading Withdrawal
Well as most of you know by now, that is if you are on Facebook, I have hurt myself…well really, why did I think I could roller skate after uh um..25 plus years, I mean really…I didn’t fracture the wrist as originally thought, but I have a very nice sprain with a nice lump; that I found out today is the swelling of my tendon lining. One steroid shot later I am back here…in my brace.
I will not lie, I am having Beading Withdrawal! Among the other things I can not do, like apply make up with precision, put in my contacts, oh let’s not talk about the hair! I have my days of feeling sorry for myself, especially reading on Facebook and Bead Chat all the fun things you all are doing. Or the Bead Challenge…how about my Kumihimo I started…yeah sits unfinished waiting for me to tackle it again! Poor Susie, I did not get my projects for the Oscar Newsletter done before, my skating fiasco!
But isn’t it funny how passionate we can be about our art? It is an art I think, I have had times when I was “bead” poor, okay so I can’t afford all that right now, but next week… Physically not being able to craft is making me crazy! I know that this is temporary and I am making good use of my beading down time, answering all my emails, posting on Facebook to my beady friends and a project on the back end for the website, thank you Ron, so not all is lost, my mind still works and I am getting quite proficient at driving with one hand!
I thank you all for your thoughts and words of encouragement! You all are the best beady friends I could have!

From now on you're going to have to have a signed permission slip before you do anything involving wheels, blades, or spiked heels on your feet!

Still sending you positive thoughts and prayers...and they will keep coming. Our BEAD CHAT group....they got me through my son Kevins concussion, and now will get you through this. We are a close group as you know, and I believe in the power of positive thoughts and prayer.
Great time to be looking for new patterns to be waiting for you to create when you can. One of my favorite things to do is to spend an afternoon looking through all of my treasured magazines and books. Before y

Karla so very sorry to hear about your very badly sprained wrist and do know that when you don't have the use to bead it can mentally drive you nuts. Hope time will soon have you back at it. But I do have a question and hope you can direct me in the right search for a stitch or method of weaving the Capture weave, just wondering if it is a similar stitch we use, since it looks like it could be. Thanks for your time and I do hope for all our sake you have a speedy recover. Avanette
