Swappin' Soup and Stitchin' Stuff

I got picked for the party!!  Thanks, Carol Dean Sharp, for pointing me at this event - I'm really looking forward to this - this is the first time I've publicly swapped soup with another beader.

Hee hee.

Still digging out boxes of beads to rifle through - my bead stash occupies several rooms around here - but I'm having fun putting this together.  I know the clasp I want to add, I just can't remember where I stashed it . . . and as I'm sorting through trays and buckets and jars of glass and gemstone and bone and metal I'm finding it hard to keep from putting new projects together for myself.

Nearly done with the principle embroidery for my "Wall of Turquoise" cuff - this is one of those projects from my to-do bucket that I started last summer.  Suddenly, out of nowhere, it demanded my attention.  Here's the progress on it so far:
The clasp I have for this is gorgeous - but I'll save the picture of it until next time.


  1. Congrats on being picked for the Bead Soup Blog Party! I participated last year and really enjoyed it but this year the randomizer has been unkind to me. Nonetheless, I'm really looking forward to the hop in March! BTW, your turquoise cuff? AMAZING! I just really love your work!

    1. Thanks, Lola! I still read your blog and love the macro photo feature.

  2. ooooh, WOW. Helpful for me to see how you design/construct such a scrumptious object! Simply divine.

  3. Your bracelets are amazing, all the rest too: D

  4. Your turquoise cuff is spectacular! I can't wait to see how it turns out.
