Visit to Bella Beads

A new stop on our vacation shopping tour was a cute little place called Bella Beads, which is in an old New England style house just on the other side of the parking lot from Keepsake Quilting and Patternworks. I was looking for something in particular to finish off a project that you have already seen in sneak-preview mode and I think I got just the right thing, plus a few other goodies! Come along and take a look...

I won't tell which beads are the ones I was looking for to complete a project. You'll have to wait until you see them on something that will be coming up very soon!

Bella Beads was a fun place to poke around with so much to see and so many pretty possibilities. There was a class going on at the large table just inside the front door so I didn't get any pictures in that direction. The owner, Sue, was very friendly and helpful, and this looked to me like a place I would be happy to spend time creating and designing some nice things. Too bad vacation is only one week a year!

Happy Stitching!
