Kutztown Folk Festival. This year it starts on July 2 and runs until the following Sunday, July 10. Every day I make beads, and every evening I put those beads into jewelry. My supply of simple spacer beads has been depleted so I decided I needed to make more, in many colors. They are not very exciting to make, but it can be very meditative. I worked my way through 8 colors, and after an hour or so I veered off and made some other beads. But it occurred to me that I would rather make spacer beads all day than work at a "real" job!

Notice the mat under the chair. The floors slants away from my bench and the chair tends to roll backwards- a real problem when making beads. I solved that by putting a heavy mat under the chair. Oh, the problems beadmakers must deal with (with which beadmakers must deal?)
