I'm double dipping in the soup pot.  My last BSBP partner, Sabrina Straub from Switzerland, and I loved our last trades so much that we decided to do a mini swap between the two of us.

Here's a sneak peak at what went in the mail today to Sabrina.

Check out some of Sabrina's fabulous lamp work beads here:

My partner this round is Kashmira Patel.  She makes some lovely jewelry - delicate, colorful, beautiful pieces.  Check out her work.

Before Fire there was Fabric and Yarn!

I have a lot of passions.  Fabrics and yarns are in that category.  I love textures.  I love weaving - actually that's one craft I haven't actually taken up, but hopefully one day - but I'm always drawn to woven goods.  My good friend and children's writing partner, Kitty Griffin Lagorio, recently went to Ireland on vacation.  She never said a word about a sussy for me, but today I opened the mailbox to this lovely woven scarf from Ireland.  I wish you could all touch it.  It is luscious!  Thank you, Kitty, for the lovely gift, and most of all for thinking of me when you saw it.
