Liz came over for lunch today. We had home made split pea soup with cheese and crackers and then David served up cherry pie with vanilla icecream. Mmm.
Liz was one of David’s first students “back in the day” and has recently been in the classroom with David over at BAM last fall. After lunch, David, Ron, Liz and I climbed up to the tower for a spring look-see.
Let’s take a look about today and begin with David’s work table top.
Much of the source material for the Buddha piece that will be at Urban Glass in Brooklyn later this year:
Here is the new shower in the bathroom. It’s beautiful.
(I’ll have to figure out why this isn’t coming through…)
And here is our first pervert looking through the shower window. “If you build it they will come.”
Taking a spin in the swing is a good way to get really really sick.
And here is our “flying nurse” and his trusty aid, Margaret.
Just arrived at the Big House - on the cover of Step by Step Beads Magazine: “Vistit David Chatt’s Amazing Bead Studio!” The article, by Alice Korach in the May/June 2006 issue, begins on page 34 with a nice picture of David and Ron in front of the Bead Wall.
See ya next week, your G.G.M.,
Lunch today was take-out from the Indian Bistro down on Market Street. Joining us were Jin and Kevin. Jin was taking a rare break from working on the Big House and Kevin was over from the Boiler Room down in Georgtown. If you need any custom blacksmithing, Kevin is the one to call.
Now onto the beading front…
Beaded clasps are one of David’s specialties - being able to incorporate beadwork into the “findings” of the piece.
I was able to take this image of the clasp for the SOFA NY necklace to share with you. This year the show runs Thursday, June 1st to Sunday, June 4th.
Let’s see…what else is going on?…
This week David will be down in Portland speaking to the Portland Bead Society on Wednesday the 19th..
Back at the Big House…
Since moving to Ballard, Betty has been growing again.
And finally, most importantly…
Ron just got home from Spokane. Ron spends each Easter with friends over in the Inland Empire. We are happy to have him back.
I look forward to seeing you all next week. Until then,

Here we are in the middle of our rainy season - should stop right around July 5th. The gloomy skies were a little brighter after lunch - broccoli casserole (receipe from David’s camp days) and tomato soup with those stupid stupid croutons.
Here’s a pic of our home town, that’s it right in the middle…
This is the delicious dessert (the second “s” is for the second helping) from the other evening (our goodbye dinner for Miwako and Yuki).
about the house today…
