I spent a most wonderful, fun weekend in Northern Ireland with the ladies of the Northern Ireland Beaders Guild, teaching 2 workshops for them – Heqet Pendant and Beatrice Cuff. Their warmth and hospitality was unsurpassed – I was treated like a queen! I stayed in the Ballymena area and was chauffeured to and from the venue, so I had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful countryside en route. I also enjoyed their delicious food – of particular note the bread and cakes! I have to say I left a bit of my heart with them when I said goodbye. Thank you girls you really made my time there very special!
