Gifts coming and going
and it's not even Christmas!
but that is what it is like when you have sweet blogging friends -
the gifts just come and go between friends all year round
especially when one sees another needing
a particular item which may come in
very handy for a project
they may be
I very recently received a pleasant surprise
in the mail from a very artistic card creator who lives
so far away from me in Scotland - Lynne Moncrieff of
sent me this!
Oh just look at that gorgeous image added to this
lovely stamped tag in one of Lynne's own mixed
and this also - a dear little shopping list embellished with
another stunning waxed image of a vintage
as well as a collection of beautiful cotton laces
which she knows I will use in my creations.
Thank you so much Lynne for your kindness
- you have been so very thoughtful!
Do go and look at Lynne's blog - address above to view
some of her amazing stamped and embellished
vintage styled creations.
and this was inside a little packet which
I returned to Lynne.
A collage incorporating one of my most favourite
subjects - a pre-raphaelite image.
I just can't help myself when it comes to
Judy from Judy's Fabrications
also knows about my love affair with vintage laces and
recently made these gorgeous pages
based on some prayer flag ideas she was creating with.
How wise are those words
and how beautiful are these images.
Thank you Judy - I love them all!
And, of course, there are always the extras of more
lace, buttons, patterns, braids too.
This was something which I created for Judy too
And I'm almost certain that these little added
came from Judy also.
Isn't there something special about creating hearts
of one sort or another. I had never seen
so many different ones until
I started blogging!
This last piece I created for Dear Ati.
Our Dear Ati (Ati's Little World)
lost her precious husband to cancer
I am sure she would appreciate a little visit -
Ati also is a lover and creator of the most beautiful crazy
patchwork quilts, mixed media books etc. and has
just completed a square as a momentum of
Simon's recent memorial with a rainbow,
butterflies and music -
Just one final thing to let you know that
I am still creating my handspun mohair Pink Scarf for the
Pink Scarf Project for those of
you who may be wondering!
I posted about this in my second to last post
you can read about it by clicking on the button
on the right hand sidebar!
One final note to each and every one who has been
so badly affected and left temporarily homeless by
the ravages of Hurricane Sandy please spare
a thought for them while we are able
to sit here at our computers
continuing to type
I am sure it will be quite some time before many others
there will have the same priviledge!
Sending love and hugs to you all!
