Beautiful!! I can't wait to make this shawl. I just finished the Mastering Lace class. Laura's Beaded Shawls class is next in my class queue.

Thank you Divine Diva, but be prepared! Laura doesn't lie. You will get addicted to buying beads. I now have a small stash that I have to find yarn for -YIKES!!!

That's visually pleasing! The beads look as if they're made out of wood!
