|What I sent Claire|
I mailed her package off and heard from her she was working on mine. She put a clever mixed up teaser on her blog and then proceeded to tell me the clasp was a new idea and that I would be her guinea pig. Each day I checked the mail and waited for my surprise.
Towards the end of August my carefully packaged soup was held up in the mail. I suddenly found myself with not only one but two partners in case the original package would arrive too late. At the beginning of September I received my package from Claire. This is just sampling of what she sent me. Since I have an art show this weekend I am going to save some these delicious beads for another day when I am able to really give them the time they deserve. I already have one set of beads tucked away with some other beads I found to complete that piece. I will have enough to make at least two more pieces after the blog hop. That will be another post on another day.

The same day I received a second package from Cathie Carroll in Washington. It was beautifully wrapped and had lovely glass pearls from Mexico, a beautiful ceramic focal by Vicki Love with both sides finished in a different design and an amazing antique button clasp. Cathie was so quick to respond I was reminded there are wonderful people in this community. I feel very blessed.

As I post both soups on Saturday you will have an idea what kind of challenge this has turned out to be for me. I want to thank both Claire and Cathie for making this a very interesting month. They both put so much effort into the packaging, the ingredients and the challenge. I am pleased with the results and hope you enjoy my designs.
