Cathie Carroll ... my Bead Soup Pardner!

I'm so excited to participate in the Bead Soup Party Swap again.  I think one of the reasons is that it encourages me to stretch in directions I might not ordinarily go.  I think another reason is that I know what I'm going to send Cathie.  I've been working on some things in the studio in preparation for Bead Fest Philly and have come up with a great clasp ... and that's all I'll say!  I can't wait to experiment on her!  LOL

I think Cathie and I might be clones.  Her love of fabric and her expression of it's beautiful qualities appeals to me so much.  Fabric was my first love.  Here are some of Cathie's magical pieces.  I especially love her Poetry Pieces where she hides a message in the piece for you to find.  I can imagine these would be a great purchase for yourself, but imagine receiving something from a loved one with a special message!  Wouldn't that be cool!  I know it's going to be hard, but please stop drooling on your keyboard!

Cathie's work is amazing! And how did you know I was drooling on my computer?

Lucky you to have such a great bead soup partner!
