I have, unjustly I feel, been accused of being obsessive with my bead collection. I would like to point out that I am not the only one in my family who could be considered obsessive.
My sister collects snow domes and this is just a fraction of her impressive collection. All have been collected in their place of origin by herself or friends or family. This shelf is one of many which she displays all around the house to give enjoyment and variety.
My bead collection is (practically) contained in a mere few drawers. OK maybe more than a few but still far less space than the average quilters stash.
These are just a fraction of my husband's book collection which (not obsessively of course) are all in alphabetical order and catalogued in a spreadsheet which he carries on his PDA.
Now I ask you - did I stand a chance??
