Each year, at the annual Bead & Button Conference, there is an auction held to benefit breast cancer research, treatment and, ultimately, a cure. The auction items started out as bead quilts and, each year, as more and more small squares of beads were donated, other items have been created.
Every year there is a theme. This year it is ‘Animals: Wild about finding a cure’. I enjoy participatichng in this event and have completed beading my ‘quilt’ squares. I just need to apply a backing and get them ready to add to the many others that will be created by the members of the Houston Bead Society and sent in for assembly.
My ‘wild animal’ selection is the dragonfly. They fly around my garden each summer; all beautifully dressed in their iridescent wings.
