Happy Saturday,
It was my B Day last weekend and I wanted to share what my daughter made for me.

I just love it. A picture of us from my sons wedding and all of the things that i love, like birds, leaves, flowers, and of course the color GREEN!! with a touch of mauve. And it is 3 dimensional.  It was the best present ever. I just love handmade.

Yesterday was mail day for me. I ordered some wool from an Etsy shop called "Quilting Acres". I just love her selection of wool. Just the right sizes and not priced to high.

And here are the 3 classes that I will teach at Celebration of Needlework

16th Century Ladies' Woollen Pocket

Funky Feathered Pin Cushion

Nantucket Blue
Have a wonderful day and I wish I had more time to catch up with everyone but I do take peeks at your blogs from day to day. And if you did  notice I changed the layout of this blog. I have a Link on the sidebar that says to click on the window and you will be directed to my blogoshere. I just had to many blogs that I love to check out so I made a blog just for those. I am always on a search for the interesting.

Oh, one more thing. Yankee Cross Stitch is having a Leap Year Sale until Fen 29th. Check it out if you are in the area and take a peak at my models :)
