Bead blog recap week 6


One thing I don't like about making these recaps is constant reminder of how time flies: already six weeks into the new year now! On the other hand: I also get a constant reminder that I'm not idle -- new posts to add here every week. From Chinese tigers to American seed bead hearts.
