an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Hello! I’ve just heard from our press, which is located on the East Coast; the blizzards that have grounded planes and closed schools and factories have also backed up freight shipping across the country. Our bindery actually had to close for two days, with over two feet of snow. Wowza! Trucks are moving again, though, and our shipment is now expected to arrive at the end of next week. No promises on the day; I must simply wait for the trucking firm to get here.
We may die of anticipation here at Team CGB, but winter is winter, and there is no arguing with a couple of feet of snow.
In the meantime, while we wait, Kate is working on a Pagoda Bangle, in process- soon it will have some excitement in the form of a secondary layer, and tiny garnets at the closure. Right now it’s still a spunky Five-Wing, one that doesn’t want to behave. Closing bracelets into bangles helps discipline them- those done strap-band style save a lot of time and beads, but they are like eels in the hand.
