Premio Meme Award...

I somehow missed seeing that I had been given this apologies dear Sharon.
I was awarded the Premio Meme Award By my friend sharon at Mana Moon Studios! I'm honored she's chosen me to be one of her recipients of this fun award! Thank you. So here's how it works....I'm supposed to share 7 facts about myself and then pass on the award to 7 others.

Here goes:

1. I used to be a hairdresser and am rather obssessive about my hair...hehe

2. I love learing about anything to do with Ancient Egypt

3. I didnt get my driver's license until I turned 19...lazy!!!

4. I turn 45 next week

5. I am left handed

6. I am a teacher and University Mentor

7. I come from a very smal farming town...not that far down the road from where I live now.
I am passing the award onto:
Belinda at Bead Fetish
Kerrie at Kerrie Slade handwoven beadwork
Lynda at SCDiva

I made this neckpiece for the Beadglass Designer Quest on the Australian Beading Forum. Each entrant purchases a deisgner quest pack (usually there are 2 colour choices)...the mission is then to create something... only using what is in the pack...quite challenging.
When I saw the beads...they reminded me of frost on the lawn on a winter morning!!! Hence the name!!
I decided to learn a new stitch...chevron chain stitch...and here is the result!!
