I'm ready to start

My name is Arline and I'm a returning BJPer. I'm very excited about starting another year with BJP. I learned so much over the year and my skills improved radically. I also gained in self confidence.
I am a retired RN and am loving retirement. I help out several days a week at our local bead shop and am active in the Central California Bead Society. I have been published twice in the Tierracast Catalog online.
Bead embroidery is my obsession and I'll probably continue until I can no longer hold a needle (many years in the future, I hope).
Hello to all my friends who are returning and welcome to all of you who are just starting. Remember, we are not in competition, so if you have questions, ask away. Someone will have the answer.
