44, 45, Surprise!

RAK #44 arrived on sweet Kaye's doorstep. She and I are both insanely into the Tudor era. So, with that in mind, here's Kaye's RAK:


A 5.75 inch doll - "Ayn" -  I made ( one of Dana Burton's designs I dressed and wigged)


A quilt panel from "The Tudor Collection" - "Lady Animals Panel"




Tudor Rose cross stitch kit and a porcelain thimble - "Anne Boleyn"


Tudor Rose post card


A better look at the quilt panel (picture from Kaye's blog)

RAK# 45 arrived just today.  The lovely Jo of ButterZ blog received these gifts:


I love fairies and cupids - this was a freebie (I can't find the link) - and LOVED stitching it up for Jo.


....extra goodies

And - SURPRISE! The lovely and generous Preeti send me this surprise package:


A stitched card, a crystal chain I can use with my itty bitty dolls, a lovely packet of buttons, material and - the creme de la creme - an absolutely GOR-GE-OUS zippered bag. Preeti knows how much I love miniatures and the picture on the bag is a larger representation of Indian princesses from historical miniature paintings. The style started in the 10th - 12the centuries. THANK YOU, PREETI! Your thoughtfulness is appreciated more than you know.
