Fabulous Friday (and winners announced)

To me,  fabulous is a particular color of green.  It gets me excited and makes me want to create.

zing!  what came in the mail

The fibres and embroidery floss is hand dyed.  I found it on Etsy, marked it as my favorite, and then jsut couldn't stop thinking about it... so I bought it.  It came all the way from the UK and was dyed by The Rainbow Girl.  Truthfully, I wish she was my neighbor, or my sister or something.  lol

The Twinings green tea sample is a Postcard!!  Isn't that cool?  I am in a "recycled" swap at PostCardCottage, and that's what my swap partner made me.  It's all stitched on, and it's extra cool because it also happens to be her last name.  (Thank you!!  I love it!)

I also want to show you some more 'fabulous'.  It's the blog of Nicki Ault.  I met her at the last art exhibit I was in, and I really love her art.  She has a whole series that are very small, but so rich and loose all at the same time.  Every once and while I need to go look at her work and it gives me new ideas on how to sew things.  I bet she doesn't know I do that!  But it's true.  Her 6x6 works are a real inspiration to me.  I kind of calm down and get lost in them.  That's a good thing when I have too much to focus on in other areas of my life.  Look at this one... click here

And OH! Before I forget, the winners of the ANPT magazine draw are:

Have a fabulous Friday.
