Look what came in the mail? Cathy sent this exquisite hardanger piece! The perfect smyrna cross, excellent kloster blocks, delicate dove's eye, detail on the edge, beautiful color (lilac/pink) are spectacular & surpass anything I could ever accomplish! Thank You so much!
A close-up to showcase Cathy's skills. The edge is beautiful as all the 'corners' are rounded. Totally Awesome.
And, look what else was in my P.O.Box ... Chelle sent some Homespun Elegance,
Cross-Eyed Cricket, DMC & freebie designs. I'm gobsmacked. I'm grateful! NINE new patterns. As Chelle says, "I'm so spoiled, I stink!!" Thank you - Thank You - Thanks a heap : )
A delivery truck came to the door ... very rare event ... DH sent me tulips from Organic Bouquet. Not only are the flowers wonderful on the table, the mauve box is going to house my scroll rods!
I used Anchor 152 (navy) + DMC 221 (dk red) for my Tin Pin Heart. The temperature soared to 53 degrees -- bright & sunny day. It was just too nice to be indoors. Didn't get it mounted into the tin (yet).
Launched the BOAF's Love. Did change the fibers from Sampler Threads to Floss. Looking forward to putting in more stitches today as it is back to usual Winter weather -- overcast, temperatures falling, forecast of rain-sleet-snow.
