Hey there, fellow beaders!!
I'm Katelyn, 18, and in the summer of 2007 I was diagnosed with Takayasus Arteritis after suffering a minor stroke. It's an autoimmune disease that makes my arteries swell shut for no apparent reason. I'm on steroids now which keep down the swelling...but they make you gain weight like no tomorrow.
I spend a lot of time at home now, and had to find a way to entertain myself, so I started beading- and found out it's the only thing I have patience for. So posted here I will have my work and later some patterns I designed using Adobe Illustrator, hope you enjoy!!
