  24. What a lovely set of summery goodies you made for Sharon, Vonna! All these gorgeous exchanges had me browsing the boards for an exchange to participate in, until I realised that exchanges mean deadlines and deadlines mean sleepless nights, so I will just wait until... next year? Anyway, I just love everything!

    When you get a chance can you email me and let me know how you apply those tiny little beads? I imagine you use thread, but do you string them and then tac the strand down??? Love it!
