Productive week

Last week has been quite productive. I've read two great books, Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead (Book # 5 of Vampire Academy series)that just came out on May 18th, and Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Loved them both!
And I just read in Richelle's blog that Spirit Bound is a #1 book on USA Today's list of bestsellers this week! I am SO excited for my favorite author! What a great reward for her hard work.

And I was able to complete several beaded projects as well.

This embroidered necklace has been waiting to be finished since... well.. too long, anyway :-) I finally did it! It actually came out better than I anticipated. I am pretty pleased.

I guess, to catch up to my live journal, I'll just create one big post about my latest beaded creations.

I finished these two just few days ago. These are results of my education in Valentina Pomeschikova's school of bead weaving.

Back to life :-)

I've originally created this blog almost a year ago but have not been keeping up with it :-(
My sincerest apologies to my followers.

Today I have decided to revive my forgotten journal.
I've been posting on www.livejournal.com for a few months now as most of my Russian friends blog there. So I figured I'd create an English version of my journal here.

And since I've deleted all of my previous entries I'll start with an intro :-)

My name is Natasha. I live in New Hampshire with my husband, our son, and a bunch of cats :-)
I've always been interested in different kinds of crafts. But the ones that seem to last for me are knitting and bead weaving. I also do a little bit of tatting.
So I'd like to dedicate this blog to the mentioned above hobbies of mine.
And I hope you will find it interesting.
