Bead by Larry Brickman.474

I went looking for Larry's site and found that he has suffered a recent health scare. So while his site isn't up and running at the moment, I'll leave the link here anyway for future reference.

The December issue of Bead & Button will feature this bead on its cover and contain an article on Larry.

To those of you who didn't get there, but really wanted to, what can I say?? You should be kicking yourself... or at least giving yourself a severe talking to so that it doesn't happen again. lol

If what I hear is correct, then there will be 3 similar shows next year. Melbourne in May, Brisbane in June & Sydney in Oct. Woo Hoo!!!

Beaders Dinner on Sunday night295 viewsYes Cathy, I'm putting this picture in anyway, even though you were being silly. lol

Thanks to Nancy for organising this dinner and for finding a restaurant who was happy to open just for us. They served the most delightful food too. Just ask Anne who ate and drank everything that she normally wouldn't. Meat, eggs, milk etc, etc... She was a very naughty girl, but oh so much fun... ;-)
