     I have been busy beading on a project that I can't show you yet, but I can share the news that Bead & Button has announced that there is a new BeadDreams category for 2014 called Ms. Maddie's Fabulous Florals.  This category has been added in honor of our friend Merle Berelowitz, who was renowned for her work with Lucite and acrylic flowers.  As many of you know, Merle passed away on July 18, 2013.
      You can find the announcement in the February 2014 issue of Bead & Button.  The category is sponsored by CJS Sales, one of our favorite bead suppliers, and the Berelowitz family.  You can see some of Merle's work at Ms Maddie's Beads and view the contest rules at Bead and Button Show.  The deadline for submission is March 25, 2014.  I can' wait to see the beadwork inspired by Merle's love of flowers.
