Hello one and all. Here I am back from our Mexican vacation! We had an okay time. The weather was not the greatest and the food was bad but the beach was gorgeous and the service at the resort was wonderful.
And the sunset - spectacular!!!!!
I do have a few other things to share though.
Joan let me know that she received the squares I sent her for the Fair and Square Exchange.
I stitched her Ink Circles Stain Glass Tree from the 2010 JCS Ornament magazine on 32 count antique white lugana with the recommended colors.
In my mailbox, was this lovely ornament exchange from Rowyn. The design is Just Nan's Christmas Wishes.
Included were some lovely goodies including a gorgeous green 28 count fabric called "Leprechaun". Love that name. Thanks Rowyn for such wonderful gifts.
Jill also let me know that she has received the personal exchange I sent here. Jill, as you know, is a peacock collector and also does some pink stitches in honor of her friend. And so her package contained -
The Holiday Peacock by Courtney Collection from the 2010 JCS Ornament magazine on 32 count hand dyed mauve opalescent fabric from a new Canadian company called Ayrloom fabrics. It is stitched with Vikki Clayton's Black Rasperry silk. Included was a peacock purse, a peacock necklace, and a mauve whatnot bag.
For her pink stitch I stitched her a freebie design on the same opalescent fabric and included Pink Ribbon scissors and made her a pink fob with a pink ribbon charm. Included was some 32 count linen - Carnation Pink and a few other little goodies.
Yesterday, I picked up my Royal Holiday from Michaels. They did a wonderful job of framing her. The mat is burgundy velvet and the frame has burgundy in the gold.
Look at my new toy - a Pandigital ereader. I have heard good things about this particular reader and am ready to try it. I just bought it yesterday and so I have a learning curve ahead.
I wonder if anyone can help me out here. I have tried ebay with no luck so -
I am looking for Quiltmaker Magazine July/August 2004. It is the fourth part of a quilt that I am interested in doing.
Till next one - keep those needles singing!
