Flossy, my parents, Pogo and I arrived home on Sunday.  Imagine my delight to discover amongst the month-high PILE of mail, two envelops from Blogland friends!

From Tiny Woolf , blogging in Belgium, a sweet heart in a striking card and a lovely note of welcome home.

 The heart is reversible...
 ...and hand-stitched all around including a hanging loop.

Thank you, Woolfie Nadine!

The next envelop was one I had been looking forward to.  While I was away, I won the Give Away over at Suzanne's Mostly Threads blog. 

 The rain drop is hand-worked on natural-dyed silk.
Weighted with a coin, it hangs softly as a little cloud when worn.
 I have been getting compliments galore - thank you, Suzanne (and Gilly, for drawing my name)!

A final word about gifts - getting back into the studio the past two days has been WONDERFUL.  I was able to swim right back into the flow and completed 10 paintings (begun in April) for the exhibit I am participating in next month in Ketchikan, Alaska.
 Here is a peek at a representative of the group, which are all acrylic collage on paper, 11" high by 7.5" wide:
'Peaks and Valleys' - acrylic collage on paper, 11"x7.5"

Hope your week is going well - I will snatch time to visit around Blogland tonight, as I have been missing everyone!  See you back here on Sunday for the Drawing Challenge brought to us this week by Patrice.
