Bead Soup Challenge

Well, I've rec'd my package of beads in the mail from Cindy and couldn't even wait a whole day before opening it!

Because this is my first time at participating in a bead soup type challenge, I didn't realize that I needed to send Cindy a list with the beads, so emailed that to her today.
