I’m so excited to share my bead soup with you. My partner Cindy Ritchie really outdid herself. My camera battery died just as I got it all open and was really tucking in. I realize I actually haven’t charged it yet since the first charge when I got it… six weeks ago! So here is just a quick little shot at the gorgeous glass I get to play with
Yes I had helpers getting at my soup! You can’t quite make it out in this picture but the sweet stamped cotton gift bag says: “Caution soup may be hot!” which made me smile since it was quite cold from being in the mail box. I was so excited to see the little bird greeting me before I even got the whole package open. Suddenly there were helper paws so I surrendered the raffia to get at my beads and then there was an immediate demand for “bubbles”. With those two satisfied I could them jump in
I got all of one shot off before the camera told me it was done. I’m not even sure how to describe some of these colours beyond just calling them pretty. so pretty. I adore melon beads and was just thrilled to see these colourful spring time ones. Great big thanks to Cindy for pulling this all together and handcrafting this gorgeous, glass, copper, and even tea dyed ribbon. I sure do feel like one luck girl!
I would be remiss if I didn’t also thank Lori Anderson who has the most uncanny bead ESP for setting up partners. My second time with the BSBP and my second score at having a perfect partner. I hope that I’ll do them proud come reveal time, April 6th. I’ve already got ideas brewing, although I’m sure they will change many times over before the fateful day.
