    I tired to learn beadweaving when I was in middle school and couldn’t quite get it right. My mother “loved” them but I realized later she might have been a little biased. That said I never really gave up the thought of picking it up again, maybe I should see if I can find a copy Rachel Nelson-Smith book.

    Love your selection of craft ideas, though the chain mail jewelry would give me fits I’m affraid.

    Have been looking forward to seeing photos of Rachel Nelson’s Smith’s newest book Two Stiches. Unfortunately, the URL for the photos comes up as Error URL not found. There are no pictures on your site to see, just blank boxes. Could someone fix this? Thank you.

    Yes, I have been looking to seeing some nice photos, and doodle stitch samples here, too, but I cannot find any. Only blank pages… It is a pity…
