I don't have a desk as such to show this week, and I know a few of you have already seen the photo of the lovely Kay and I wearing our WOYWW buttons/badges - UK meets New Mexico........scroll down to see it:)
But I truly thought you might really, really, like to see this, desk or no desk here in NM:
teeniest seed beads make up the traditional image, and it isn't made on a loom either, so the work is much trickier - plus there's a New Mexico coin in the pocket of the amulet. I know, a pocket even, so the back is all beaded as well! Believe me, I've looked at more jewellery shops here this past week than you could shake a stick at - and absolutely nowhere have I seen anything like this. If bribed I'll bring it along to the October crop - £1 a peek and £5 to handle it :)) It's absolutely stunning and I'll always treasure it - along with some great memories of the hoots of laughter, fun and hugs we've shared.
For those of you who haven't already seen - here we are, bonded like glue within half an hour of meeting:
fabulous thing that Julia started - WOYWW - Julia, you rock :))
All I can say is - if any of you/us get the chance to meet up - this is proof that there's a massive bond amongst WOYWWers.
On a sad note, sigh, today (12th September) it's our last meeting with Kay :( All good things come to an end, but we'll be back and I know for sure that Kay will be welcomed with open arms in the UK to come and play, by both Len and I as 'major hosts' and lots of other bloggers.
