GYB Winner, The Postman Cometh, Tiny Slippers, Friends Swapaway Update

I'm a bit late, but that seems to be my story these past few weeks.  Anyway, the random number generator selected

as the winner of  the Grow Your Blog Party give away.  The GYB Party was hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.  Thank you, Vicki - it was a blast!! A huge thank you and "Welcome" to my new followers.  I hope this will be an inspirational and exciting year full of ideas….and stitches.

The postman delivered a package to me last week from Thoeria - I'll get to stitching and pass the patterns along.  And - WOW!  What great metallic Madera threads.  Perfect for my 1:12 fascination - er - projects. Thank you, Thoeria!!

And now - here are the slippers I stitched. They're a little over an inch long. I made up the pattern myself and stitched on 40 Ct silk gauze.  If you can't tell, the design on the toe of the slippers are blue roses ;0) and the top of them are adorned with a wee-tiny blue cording. They aren't perfect, but I don't think they came out too poorly, considering I didn't know what I was doing - HA! The next pair will be better.  I already have an idea for the design.

OH!  And the "Friends Swapaway" parcels will be going out in the mail next week.  I can hardly wait to share what June and Kaye will receive.
