Garden Theme Exchange from Goldie
I received this really lovely SBEBB Garden Theme Exchange from Goldie today :-) My photo does not do this pretty flat fold any justice, but there is a much better photo of it on Goldie's blog - the colors are so yummy, and of course it is so perfectly stitched and finished.
Goldie spoiled me with lots of goodies - two pretty charts, two wonderful cuts of fabric, seed packets that will be started in peat pods very soon, and a tin of mango Altoids... and see that butterfly card? The orange butterfly detaches from the card and gets planted in the ground - it is packed with wildflower seeds! I am going to grab a big pot this coming weekend, fill it with seed starting soil and bury this little butterfly ;-) I can't wait to see what grows! Thank you so much Goldie!
For my own stitching tonight, I finished Snowman's Holiday ornament, but will try to get a good photo of it in the daylight tomorrow morning (try being the operative word, as it is very rainy here and is expected to be so in the morning as well).... and I worked on House Samplings too :-)
On a sad note today, a colleague brought me an obituary from last Thursday's paper. A young woman I treated for many years (about 13), and who was by far my most challenging client to date, while also being one from whom I learned so very much, passed away suddenly a week ago... I feel devastated. She moved out of state a couple of years ago.... so very sad to learn this news today...
