A dead witch.

I don't think its anything you have to be worried about. Sewn together bags of beans are often used by youth in games. 'hackeysack', where the bag of beans is kicked back and forth between players. It is more likely that is what you found than something of Voodoo basis.
Why are other people strange? We are who we are, regardless of race, religion, creed, or etc. etc. {Besides maybe it's non-witch people who are strange, lol}

That is different for most people, I think, but she usually goes by The Mother, The Lady, The Goddess, etc.
You can get a curse but not catch one. You can get one by doing bad things for your whole lifetime. Magical curses are usually the result of some inappropriate action, or because someone else has a grudge against you.
