Well, after that oh so cold snap, it's warmed up to almost balmy here. It's 23 degrees F, and for the polar bear birthday party at our local zoo, it was nearly 40 that day! I wrote about it in my blog and showed a picture of the bears enjoying their big snow cake, and of the swans and ducks enjoying the warm weather. I hope you're all keeping warm!
Here's the latest article from the Beadwork site at BellaOnline.com.

How to use porcupine quills in beadwork.
I also wrote a review of a book from Interweave Publications you can find here.
Some of my new readers may not know this, but I've had a website up since 1997, and I've got a lot of free graph paper for beaders available there. You can see that at http://shala.addr.com/beads/resources/graphpaper/index.html .
