Peacock Alley needlepoint, I think I have mentioned them before!, has great new goodies! Bead Soup Starters! The package says seed beads + small variety=Bead Gravy with lumps. The glass bead mixes will each string up to about "30" in length" and you can add "cr-rrunch to your diet of fibers and fabric". They are Hofmann Originals and have a website at http:// www.beadsoupandmore.com, but you can also contact the girls at Peacock Alley to get you some. http://www.peacockalleyneedlepoint.com Machelle has some in the front window display on the home page and I noticed them as soon as I went in...... the ones on the left are Tomato Salsa, and the ones on the right are Crispy Blue Bright.....thinking earrings here people. Then.....I did not know Au Ver A Soie has Soie Chenille a' Broder, shown in black......thinking eyeglass holders....chuckling to myself too!
