this is the story of our life at "Rosevale on the Palouse Prairie" in eastern Washington State, and my love affair with all things fiber/fabric.
'BeanQueen' you might ask, well in my previous life I was the curater of the Phaseolus Germplasm Collection (beans native to the western hemisphere) in the United States. My lovely #2 sister gifted me with my 'nom autre'.

Mexico here I come
A view of Guanajuato, Mexico - where I will be attending Phaseomics - The Genome (Special Edition) meeting for the rest of the week.
My first time in Mexico; never fear the camera will be busy!
I will be presenting a talk and chairing one of the meeting sessions.
It's going to be my "last hurrah" as the U.S. Phaseolus curator and an absolutely wonderful way to head into my retirement.
Here is a map of the state of Guanajuato, where the capitol is the same name.
I'll be meeting lots of "bean guys" and sharing my passion for the crop with all sorts of others who feel the same way.
OK-OK, we're weird :~) but remember it takes all kinds to make the world go 'round!
