Proof positive that a good model can make good look great.
Ok, the picture is *much* better in person. This is a photo of a photo (my scanner & I… we do not speak). The cutie is Sara’s Joshua. And the quilt is talked about in this post (if you want details about it, Sara’s blog is for details about the model 😉 ).
Along with the pictures of the quilt being beautifully modeled Sara also sent me some lovely goodies.
Athena! with silks, wisper, needles, and lovely thank you note.
And this gorgeous Matryoshka doll.
The picture taking is hit or miss this morning. But they are wonderful in person. The little one? she’s smaller than a thimble. They’re all nested up and living in the “good” cabinet behind glass now.
Other goodies arrived at my house this week.
The first kit in Jackie du Plessis’s Carried Away online class (class is full). This will get me started on the stitching. The kit is outstanding. Sorted, labeled, and her charts are detailed and clearly written. Exceptional. I wish I could show you how beautiful they are. Maybe once I start stitching, I’ll edit a snippet so you can get an idea of how well done they are.
A magnetic dish for pins, hand painted with my favorite daisies.
I’ve started making my yo-yos for Yoyoville. These are so much fun to make, I can make about 10 a hour. But I need 197. Which means… I’ll be making yo-yos for something like 20 hours.
And had to stop by the LNS for the new JCS ornie issue. My Lizzie Kate, Socks and Underwear arrived while I was there yay! And I picked up a few of the threads for it and would you look at that? Another Halloween chart followed me home.
