An exchange, a gift... and webby!

What a nice mail day today!!

First, I received this really pretty SBEBB Biscornu Exchange from the dear, sweet Carolyn :-) She knows how to spoil me very well. She stitched a Papillon Creations biscornu for me... I really love Papillon Creations. And the extra goodies - so nice! A neat needlework journal that I cannot wait to really sit down and check out, some pretty purple and pink fibers, a sweet Elizabeth's Designs chart (another of my favorite designers), a thread counter, great pieces of fabrics for smalls and pins too! Thank you Carolyn - I hope to get to stitch for you soon too!
And, another treat! A belated birthday suprise from the lovely Sharon (have you seen the adorable back to school picture of her kids - good lookers, and boy have they grown!)... Sharon sent me a chart I wanted so, so badly off of my wishlist and a baggie full of gorgeous Hand-Dyed Fibers silks! Sharon, you are so wonderful - thank you!!
Is webby a word? If not, I am going to use it anyhow. My fairy (I know, a fairy with no wings - but I still love her) has a lot of webs at her feet now :-) OK... really close now to needing that Kreinik that still is not here... neither is the ballast DH ordered for my Ott-Lite...

Stitched on today: Halloween Fairy

She looks beautiful.

At my LNS we were discussing the issue of the new fairy not having wings. This is what we decided:

As she is not completely facing one side or another, we cannot see her back. The other fairies she has made have small wings and are either facing one side or another or have their backs to us so we can see the pretty wings.

Not much of an explination but it sure kept a discussion going :o)

Hi Carol,
Your halloween fairy is looking so beautiful!!
I fell in love with her beauty!
Is this chart is sold at shop? or only in the magazine?
If so can we buy only this issue or should we subscrive for a year or so?
Sorry, lots of questions...
Anyway, I'm so looking forward to seeing your fairy!!

Okay, you have to tell me how that webbing is done, because it looks spectacular and I think no Halloween design should go without it. Gorgeous!
Love the gifts you've received!

She is Gorgeous Carol, and the fabric you chose is perfect for her! I love those webby's - they sparkle! I hope your other bits turn up soon so you can finish her.
