I had a second nice surprise in the post yesterday, this time from Helen: some red fluffy "feather boa" stuff (sorry, don't know its proper name). Remember the Heritage Stitchcraft Christmas Chickadee we both stitched? Helen finished hers with this and I so loved the look because it was such a fun finish - now I can dig mine out of the drawer and finish it. Thank you so much for your kindness Helen. :0)
The Elizabeth Design piece I'm thinking of stitching for our 25th Wedding Anniversary, only two years away now. The Seasons of my Life I just couldn't resist when I saw it: it so brings to mind the Goddess as maid, mother and crone and the Pagan take on life that it's a must stitch piece. The fabric is R&R 30ct Goldfinch, to be used for the LHN needlebook and Always and Forever, a chart I got last time around. The Halloween piece is another one I love. BTW, if anyone knows where I can get some hand dyed orangey coloured fabric similar to that in the chart pic I'd be much obliged if you could point me in the right direction, thanks. :0)
The last couple of days I've been doing a little organising (don't all faint in shock! LOL). I unearthed a QVC TSV cardmaking box of goodies whilst looking for something else (as you do) and in it I found one of those plastic, expanding crocodile files. Result: a nicely organised 12x12 and 8x8 paper stash in that and the better paper and fancy card stock has been organised into the smaller file I bought from The Range some time ago. DH and DS have yet to notice..... but that's par for the course. ;0)
Lynn: so glad the card etc arrived safely and that you liked them. Glad the notepaper gave you a smile - whenever you look at it remember that there's another "red hot mama" out in cyberspace who is thinking about you. :0) Unfortunately I still can't comment on your blog - luckily I'm able to read it via Bloglines. I'm convinced it's a problem at my end, which I hope will be solved when DH sets up the new computer tower for me and I can get all the Windows updates (whenever that will be - we've only had it a couple of months so far! LOL).
Well, if I'm going to make a start on the next part of the Ozark piece I'd better get out from behind this computer.
Hope you all had a good weekend and that this week is treating you well. Many thanks for visiting. :0)
