Beading Class In Wynola

I took my second beading class today at Mountain Beadworks in Wynola. When I took my first beading class a couple of weeks ago, I was attracted to a necklace that was in one of the cases. They offered a class for the Crocheted Beads with Wire and I signed up. I went up there a week later to shop for my beads so I did not have that pressure on class day.

Wynola is about 20 miles north of Ramona up Highway 78 which is a winding single lane in each direction. I got stuck behind a BMW going 30 miles an hour and pulled over to let him get way ahead of me. The vista from the picnic area was beautiful. Here is a photo from the Inaja Memorial on the way up to Wynola.

I picked out mostly fall colors with some punches of orange and purple and red. I had a nice mix of colors and shapes, beads and semi-precious stones. I used black 26 gauge wire. It was fun and I love the way the necklace turned out.

beautiful !!!! You done good for your first time. Glenda

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
