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.
