Beading for a Cure 2010

It is that time of the year again. My group over on Delphi Forums have done this for 6 years. It is called Beading for a Cure: Layne's Legacy. One of our online friends died from colon cancer , and in her memory we started this charily. We each purchase a kit which has been made up by bead store owners. We can make anything with the only rule that you Must use at least one of each bead in the kit and can add only one bead type. For this year's auctions, I made "Gertrude's New Hat". She is a fully beaded hippo that started out as a Dreampets stuffed toy and on her way to the trash heap. I "rescued" her and encrusted her with tons of beads. There also are some other lovely items for auction this week.

Please think about adding a treasure to your home and helping a great charity.

She is absolutely divine! Bravo! You are a true artist. I hope you raise bunches of money to fight this terrible disease.
