I added the picture of my new runaround bag to the sew & stitch along Flickr Group.
The bag is a noodlehead pattern it was so easy to make and I think it looks great.
Sorry this is in two posts, just can't get my iPad to do what I think it should.

Bead Soup Blog Party #5

 The beautiful vintage pendant

Vintage crystals

Vintage crystal and pearl clasp

My bead soup from Heidi of Ex Post Facto Jewelry has been so much fun to work with. She sent me some lovely vintage pieces. I made this long necklace (that I like very much) and a pair of crystal earrings.
I still have some pearls and crystals, I plan to make a bracelet with them.

Have fun at the Blog Party!!!    Thanks to Lori and Heidi, I had great fun!!!!

Bead Soup arrival

My bead soup from Heidi of Ex Post Facto Jewelry

She sent some very lovely vintage components.

I am so lucky, she gave them up to send to me! I love vintage, but I have trouble using the pieces I find. I always think I will never find that piece again, so I just hoard them.

I will have so much fun working with some of Heidi's vintage stash, Thank you Heidi.

Please hop on over to Lori’s blog to see the list of all bead soup blogs.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
