|thank you Michael! xo|
I ran a lot of errands yesterday. I mailed MORE cards out, gifts to nieces and nephews across Canada, and sent the two EQ5 books to a woman in Texas. So they are gone FYI. I also stopped at Molly's house to pick up an embroidery book. You know, "Molly my supplier". ; ) She's so sweet. Have you met her? She is always pleasant, always smiles, and always calls me 'dear'. As soon as I walked in to her house I heard, "Hello there dear". Maybe I can arrange to have her adopt me or something. hehehe She knits, so I need to come up with some fabulous gift for her. In the mean time, I made her a little thank you card. THANK YOU MOLLY!
And now for Mandy's Magical Tree. YES (Mandy if you are reading), I have been slowly creating that piece. Bear with me, because the work-in-progress photos are extremely bland. But as I work along on it, the next step pops into my head and I'm sooo excited with how this is coming along. So check it out:
|baby slings, carrier straps, booties too! (brown not hers)|
|auditioning the threads I'll use for quilting the sky|
|mei tei moon|
|rainbow booties that will become 2 stars in the sky (2 boys)|
|my fabric for the leaves - she asked for light greens & yellows|
I have this awesome idea that I've already started on for the leaves!! They are all cut out - several dozen by hand. Also, the tree is now quilted with brown threads and I did Trapunto as well. (Trapunto is when you add batting to certain areas to make them pop.) Those photos will have to wait. Sneak peaks only. I can't spoil the surprise for Mandy.
How can you NOT love those booties!!?
Now back to creating! : )
