The angel who lives next door to me. My neighbor Gale is a treasure. I consider myself very fortunate to have her in my life. She is such a wonderful person - and she teaches line dancing. She asked me to make her an apron and so I introduced her to quilt shops. She and I had so much fun. I decided to make her a reversible apron and she picked two wonderful southwest fabrics. I got her to model the apron when I was done. Can't you tell she is a happy person.
Dawn of Golden Angels Works fulfilled a wish for me on the Sanman board. I wished for a scissor fob for my newest Gingher scissors. This is the delightful fob that arrived in my mailbox. Dawn wrote me a note that says she now has the Queen stitch down pat after several tries. I really appreciate the work she put into the fob and I have met another Arizona stitcher!!!
A wonderful lady by the name of Gaby. I fulfilled a wish for her on the Make a Wish board several years ago. Although we don't communicate often we keep up with each other's work. I saw a book on facebook that I went crazy over but when I looked into purchasing it the price was exorbitant - partly because the book was from France. Gaby lives in Germany and was able to purchase the book for a more reasonable price and sent it to me. It landed in my mail box this week and I am still drooling over it!!!!! It is a book full of Long Dog designs.
Jennifer of the Confessions of a Serial Starter blog started a wonderful LaDeDa traveling pattern. I was privileged to receive it in yesterday's mail. She has included a journal and the wonderful words that everyone has wrutten in it are all so inspiring.
Here is my choice of fabric and thread and I will start to stitch asap.
Angel #5 is my BFF Beatrice. She gifted me with a cross stitch of the Point Loma Lighthouse in San Diego, California.
Here is my progress on my newest stitch!
And I have a finish to report!!! Here is LHN -Summer Splendor in all it's glory. That is finish #5 for me this year!!!!!!
Oh and a frog report - I sat down to work on the travelling pattern and lo and behold sitting on my chair was a monstrous ole frog. After I picked out about 6 letters I kicked his behind to the curb. I hope I didn't send him your way but he was OUTTA here!!!!!
