New Hampshire Hi

Hi--I'm Jann from Etna, New Hampshire (part of Hanover, home of Dartmouth College) and Sunapee, New Hampshire. We live on an island on Lake Sunapee in the summer.

I enjoy weaving, quilting, and beading. In fact, beading has taken over my life. I am now having fun beading rivolis for a bracelet, pendants, and lots of Christmas tree ornaments. I've also tried Robin's finger weaving this summer and made two tassels. When my 15 year old grand daughter was visiting in July she made three mini-tassels for herself and friends to put on their backpacks for school.

I am a returning bead journal member. I'm planning to bead pins this year. My goal is to add more dimension to my work. Of course, it isn't yet September so I might change my focus. Once we move back to Etna in a couple weeks I will again have my bead stash to inspire me.

Happy beading!

Hello from a fellow NH citizen! You live in a gorgeous part of our state. Have the leaves started to change color yet? I've had one or two leaves turn color so soon all of them will be changing. It would be fun to get together sometime. I'm new to beading and need a mentor.

I'm happy to hear about the teens' finger weaving! Yay! I enjoyed watching both sets of your pages develop last year, and look forward to it again! Robin A.
