7th Bead Soup Blog Party

The 7th Bead Soup from Susanna Lehto has arrived all the way from Finland!. She made the lovely beads, you can follow her on 

Isn't that Bead in the shape of the head of a Hare not fantastic??
The larger beads did not make the journey very well and got a bit chipped. I have to think about what I am going to do with them as they are too sharp to use. The amazing clasp is made by a friend of Susanna.
Solen has her own blog I hope you drop in when I reveal what I have made with these on the13th of April.

The beads arrived last week but I was too busy to post as I had two visitors. My Sister Caroline came over from Holland and we made jewellery together, you can find her on and my Dutch friend Janneke came over from the USA too. Janneke makes the most beautiful quilts.
We laughed, chatted,ate some lovely things and it was so lovely just to catch up.
