Oh me, oh my - what a treasure-filled package I received from Narelle. Look at the bag and matching needle book! Not to mention the ADORABLE panda measuring tape, 100 Anniversary spoon, the stack of fabric squares and a pen from Atherton, North Queensland. THANK YOU, Narelle! I love, LOVE it all.
This past Sunday I hosted the 4-H club, Denim and Dust, at my studio. There were 12 young ladies and 4 mothers who came for the cross stitch project. I had a BLAST! I think the girls did, too. They were all so nice, attentive and polite - I'd love to have the visit again and work on another project. They kept me busy - lots of questions - and (I think) seemed to enjoy themselves. I snapped a quick picture:
I thought you might enjoy seeing one of my miniature paintings, "Alexa", after "La Ghirlandata" by Daniel Rosetti. The portrait itself measures 2.75 inches, while the raised past, enamel and gold work band is .25 inches.
Here he is looking out the bay window in our kitchen.
