soup's up

Today I opened two very special packages:


- one from Jade Scott which I'm so glad has arrived - it means I can play along with the blog hop Lorelei is organising - and secondly from my bead soup partner, Queen Bead herself (sorry, truly terrible pun - I'm British, I can't help it ;-)) Lori Anderson


She was so generous as to send me two bead soups! In really pretty packaging, complete with tiny little frilly circles telling me exactly what everything is. 


I'll let the photos speak for themselves. {NB You will notice that the pink soup photo is a little yellow-ish....I took all the other photos when I got in from work today, and then a private pupil turned up for her singing lesson before I had had a chance to fully unpack the pink soup, hence the poor light I had to work with post-lesson!}

I'm so glad your pinwheel arrived in time! Your first soup colors are right up your alley, but I'm sure the other Ms. Anderson knew that :) I can see the pink being a bit of a challenge for you, but then that's the whole point. It's all a very lovely collection you've got to work with in any case. Can't wait to see what you do.

These are both great sets she sent. Since blue is my favorite color, I'm partial to the first one but the second is also great. I wouldn't expect less from Lori! How awesome to have her for a partner. I know you'll have a good time working with the goodies she sent.
