Bead Soup Bead Suprise

I meant to blog about this earlier in the week but the days seem to have disappeared. I completely forgot to photograph the packet I sent off to my swap partner Michelle of Life in the Bead Lane. Now Michelle owns a bead shop so I was a little nervous about my package. So far I haven't heard from her to say it's arrived but I hope it has. We posted on the same day to try and ensure we received about the same time.
My packet arrived earlier this week all the way from Wisconsin.

As you can see my little package had an amazing variety of contents, not 1 but 2 bead soup packets, a pretty blue handmade beady bead, a piece of sari silk and a little note explaining what all the beads were, where they had come from or who had made them.
I have some ideas and had my husband not come down after settling the eldest and told me he'd decided to sleep in my bed as it was cold, not Daddy's side Mummy's side, apparently Daddy's side is too warm and Mummy's is just right?! I would be creating tonight. However my beading bits are currently being stored in our room after we turned my beading room into number 2 sons bedroom. I don't want to risk waking him so it will have to wait until tomorrow.
What was in your soup?


  1. This is a soup-er bead soup! and two helpings... Yum-O!
    Thanks for the visit and leaving a comment. Can hardly wait to see what you'll create!

  2. What lovely photos Fiona! I can't wait to see what you make! I'm well on my way to finishing not 1 but 5 pieces with what you sent to me.


I love to hear your comments and your experiences.
