I just received a great little bead book in the mail from Meg: Bead Embroidery - The Complete Guide. It looks like a good resource and I'm looking forward to delving deeper into it. I have to say I love books in this format with the small size (perfect for toting around) and the coil binding inside so it stays flat for you while you are working. Looks like lots of great instructions which will be a great help working on the Bead Journal Project this year. This was a prize from a draw of names from the December monthly challenge at CQI. Thanks Meg!
