Here are the links I created with seed beads in a peyote stitch. The big yellow ring is the glass one that was sent to me. #beadsoupblogparty

Peyote links, with a yellow glass bead that I got from Helena Hatten as part of the swap.

Today is the day of the reveal.  With the kids sick, a huge project at work and a husband hobbled by tendinitis in both ankles, I worked up to the last minute. Not sure if this is the final design, but I got it done! This is the focal... #beadsoupblogparty

This is the bead stash I got from Helena Hatten.  Aren't they wonderful?! While red and yellow aren't colors I normally use, I am thrilled to try something new, plus I got a fantastic fish bead! While Helena does make her own lamp work beads, the fish is one of her hoarded beauties. She doesn't know that I have a collection of fish beads! I love them! Tomorrow is reveal day, and I have a bunch of work to complete tonight. I hope she likes what I do with her goodies... #beadsoupblogparty

Somewhere in this collection, I will find the beads to send to my swap partner.  Oh, I wish I could say that this is the majority of my horde, but, alas, it is not.  Not even close!

Not sure if I can part with any of my Faith beads!  These were all created by my friend Faith Davis Ferris.  I miss her!

So excited to participate this year!  I have SO many beads.  It will be hard to part with some of them, but I am sorting through my horde to see what goodies I can send!
