In early March I was stuck home, having carpeting ripped out/installed. I was daydreaming about attending the Bead & Button show in Milwaukee, in June. So, time to bead Wisconsin.
It used to be when I thought about Wisconsin, it was all about cheese. Now, with the Bead & Button show a yearly event in Milwaukee, when Wisconsin is mentioned, I think about beads,...and cheese. (And Harley Davidson's, which are built in Milwaukee, but beading that would've been a huge project in itself!). Cheese colors don't lend themselves to beading, so I'll get back to basics, ... cows.
I liked the thought of Wisconsin as a black and white cowhide. Then, there will be an explosion of beads around Milwaukee.
