Yesterday, I received a RAK from Anne in Australia. She had a giveaway on her blog for this Drawn Thread chart. Though, I didn't win it-she has so very generously RAK'ed me the chart and couple of Gentle Arts threads to go with it. It is so very sweet of her-especially with the year she has had to think of me in such a way. I appreciate it more than words could ever say! Thanks Anne! I know we often say this-but I really believe stitcher's are some the nicest people on the planet!
PS: Thanks to all of you for your kind words on Carol's exchange!
Carol let me know that she received her winter exchange today. I used a little kit by Just Another Button Co. called bring it on. I call it winter with an attitude and since Carol has had such a rough one I thought this was appropriate. Sometimes you just have to have an attitude to make it through all the snow some of you all get. I can't even imagine snow from a balmy 70 plus degrees here today Florida! I finished it into a flat fold. I sent her a needleroll chart by Periphaeria Designs and the cutest thread holder by Monique . They are so neat and you can find them at her Etsy Shop . Go on over and grab you a few! I also sent some stitcher's lotion, chocolate and silk threads. I am glad you liked everything Carol! Coming soon a happy dance on African Woman! Hope everyone's St. Patrick's Day treated you well!
Here is an update on African woman currently in progress. She is coming along nicely and hopefully I will be finished soon. The last time I posted-her dress only came down to where her hands are. So, that gives you an idea of how much I have progressed. I am looking forward to finishing her. I found another pattern similar to her by Bleu de Soie and I am going to stitch that as an companion piece-it's called African woman and child. I have been busy working, but I finally got my winter exchange out to Carol today. So, pics next week. Now that it's done I am trying to decide what I will really focus on besides my little woman here.
Below is some of the stash that I have gotten over the last month. An eclectic little mix don't you think? I am sure that this is not all-but posting anymore would probably make me feel guilty or have me running for the nearest therapist (Carol, do you think I need help? LOL) I won't label everything, the pics. are clickable. But, if you have a question just email me or leave it in the comments. Last but not least I want to thank you all for your kind words of sympathy for my little Midnight. I appreciated you more than you know and your words were very comforting. Now, I am off to feed the masses better known as my children! Have a grest weekend!
