December, 2011--The Seashore Chapter brought in Nancy Cucci to teach this piece at a two-day class. Learned a lot more about beading doing this project than on anything before. Loved the technique she gave us for stitching our initials and date. Will try to incorporate this in many more projects.
May, 2012--Won Third Place Ribbon for Mixed Techniques at the Rehoboth Beach Museum's Annual Needlework Exhibit.
