A Beaders Duel

It's not quite pistols at dawn, but as you may have read in The Dixon Chick's blog, Stephanie and I are now "duelling beaders" after going to open beading night at Beadfx last night.
It was a bit wet and slippery out on the roads so I wasn't too surprised to discover we were the only ones there to bead, although we did try to convince some of the shoppers to stay and join us, but we had a lot of fun hanging out with Jen, Dwyn and Marg (Marg is on her way to Tucson today for the bead shows and I was trying to convince her she needed to take me along to act as her assistant and/or to carry her suitcase but to no avail.)

As we were getting ready to leave, Dwyn was discussing the weekly inspiration section in their weekly newsletter that also appears on their website. Stephanie volunteered to provide "guest inspirations" and Dwyn quickly accepted and handed her the beads for this week's issue. Since I am not one to turn down free beads, I quickly jumped in and volunteered too! With that, the gauntlet was thrown down.

So now we are duelling beaders, each challenged to come up with something inspirational for the Beadfx readers. No pressure!!
