Gift, beads

Our friend has been gone for a while and did a lot of beading during that time. She gave each of us in the quilt group a necklace she had made. This is mine. Isn't it beautiful?
I had to make a trip to Seattle on business today. It's strange but the car automatically takes the exit at Lacey and goes to Shipwreck Beads. Here's a selection of the ones I bought. I have to decide before going what type I'm going to focus on or all is lost. It is the size of a warehouse for those who haven't heard of it. This time I bought lots of Toho beads, seed beads in other sizes, and the four strings of decorative beads.

That would be a dangerous store to have anywhere in the same state! My collection is already out of control.

If I was anywhere close to Shipwreck Beads, my car (even if it was a rental) would surely pull off in Lacey. I'm making a trip to Seattle in June to see family and that will certainly be one of our stops!
