We have been here at Twin Lakes RV Resort ( for about 8 months now. It is a very pretty park with 500/800 sites and is located at the beginning of the Pamlico Sound where the Tar and the Pamlico Rivers meet. We arrived here in March and decided to stay stationary for a while.

We have at least a one year lease on the rv spot we are in and when the lease is up we will see if it is time to move on to another spot or to stay here a little longer.  It is a nice place and just outside little Washington (Washington, NC), which is also a nice little town.  It could be a little closer to the Outer Banks which we love, but it is all the way up at the mouth of the Pamlico river.

While we have been here I have been able to learn many new techniques using beads, as well as complete a few other unfinished projects. I hope to finish my first knitted-beaded amulet bag tonight. It is from a pattern by Theresa Williams, a.k.a. The Bag Lady, ( and is called Baby Dahlia. This bag has been fun to do and I am looking forward to doing many more in various styles.

I learned to knit over the last month or two using yarn and size 8 needles. Once I was comfortable with the knit stitch, I moved on to this pattern. For this first attempt I chose to use DMC size 8 Perle Cotton in Ecru color and #227, size 11 seed beads, a denim color purchased from
