Awesome Mail Day!

 Tuesday, November 02, 2010

I tripped my way down to the mailbox today only to find it stuffed to the gills.  And for a change, it wasn’t bills!


I was lucky enough to win Day 20 of the 31 Days of Halloween Giveaway that Missy Ann and Annette hosted over at their respective blogs.  Today my package arrived (which I swear is a record – things from the US usually take months!)….  Here’s what I received:



A gorgeously stitched pinkeep (I’m so in love with the ruched ribbon it’s scary!), a skeleton needleminder (which will shortly be adorning the current model I’m working on), a kitty threadwinder (in one of my favourite DMC colours, as luck would have it) and the best bag of candy goodies.  I’m hiding those from my DS’.  They’re all mine!  :-)


Here’s a closeup of the pinkeep front and back:

Thanks so much to Missy Ann for such a wonderful gift.  I feel so blessed today.


And the fun didn’t end there…..


Some time ago I signed up for a series of painted canvas kimonos that Janet Perry over at Nuts About Needlepoint was teaching on-line.  I admit that I’m terribly behind in the stitching of these kimonos (but I *WILL* get back to them soon), but I have been reading each lesson as it comes out.  They are so well written and easy to understand.  I can’t wait until I have time to get back to stitching them.  Today, however, the 4th canvas in the series arrived with its threadpack:



Most of the fibers are Waterlilies, Watercolours, Gloriana and GAST, but new to me will be the Soy Lustre from Pure Palette.  I love the vibrant colours in this kimono and the overdyed threads will be fun to play with…..


BUT, I’d better get back to work on the models first….

You're very welcome Erica!

The design is by Bent Creek, the backing fabric - that's a cute story. SilverLotus up there in Canada sent me a fat quarter in an exchange package - so that is a very well traveled print.

Glad you like the rusched ribbon; I hated every second of making it. lol There's a reason you only see that once in the entire month of October. ;)

What a fabulous mail day!

And it looks like that fabric travelled a long only to end up almost back home again. :)
