Default 100 BHKBs for June

June was a good month for torching. July will not be so good. It looks like I'm going to spend much of the month clearing debris from the severe thunderstorm the other night. I feel lucky though. We are surrounded by huge old trees. All of the many branches that fell missed our house. We only had minor damage to a gutter and a fence. We will have significantly less shade, but at least no holes in the roof.

I'll get these guys in the mail early next week.

Thanks, Lysa. I had a few scary hours. Our patio was six feet high in elm branches, some of them 8 inches in diameter. Yet none our patio furniture was damaged, the grill was untouched, and not even a potted plant (and I have a dozen out there) was bruised.

So glad you are safe! Those beads are soooo fun! Reminded me of being a kid with a plateful of cookies, and you can only pick one. I love them all. What a labor of love!

Susan, I love all the faces!! Had to study all of them. I can see at least 10 I would pick right away! Your angel was looking out for you during the storm. That is good news.

Thanks. Beth, if those beads were cookies, I wouldn't be sharing. Pat, I do feel like we had an angel out there.

Another awesome batch Susan! I know the folks at BOC love seeing packages arrive with your name on them.

So happy you made it safely through the storms.

Thanks Diane and Lisa. I'm itching to get back to the torch and start my July beads, but it is HOT here, and we are still on generator power.

Thanks, Susan and Susan. I overdid the cleanup on the first day, then we hired someone to come in. We are still on generator power, so turning on the kiln is out. It may be a while before I'm back to torching.

Thanks Branda and Eileen. I just replenished my supply of black for more skunks, but it's been too hot to torch.

Wow! I am totally gobsmacked by your amazing beads! I love so many of them, the skunks are just fabulous. I had to quickly scroll up when my son came by - if he saw them I'd never hear the end of it!!
They are all wonderful!

Such a blessing you were spared by the storm.
