It's official. The Kingdom of Bahrain has the quickest postal service. And the most accurate. When my BSBP partner mailed her package to me, she was told it would reach me within 4 working days. And whaddaya know? I came home from work today to find my bead soup package waiting for me on the dining table, almost exactly 4 days after it was mailed. I can only hope that she gets my package soon.
I'll post pics of the beads I received later in the week - I want to photograph them in natural daylight to do them justice and I won't be able to do that till the weekend. But I will say that I love what I got, and also that Hajer Waheed is one generous gifter. She didn't send a bead soup; she sent a bead kit (minus findings)! And it all came in the pretty parcel below. Love the pink ribbons!
