Things to share :-)


I received such a sweet return exchange from Pascale (Crazy Exchange Group) today. She says this is her first ever biscornu. Well, I say she has quite a nice road ahead for her making biscornus - it is lovely! And I just love, love, love Barbara Ana's designs so much. And the feathers for future crafting use... too cute! Thank you so much Pascale.

I heard from Leena this morning that she has received a little birthday gift that I had put together for her. Like many of us, Leena loves Mary Garry - and I am glad she likes her little gift. Leena is such a love :-)

On a personal note, my family member who has been ill had what appears to have been a successful surgery today. She wanted me with her in the recovery room today and I got a real look into the inner workings of a busy city hospital, for sure! Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. The road to recovery and rehabilitation is still long and rocky, but she is on her way now... and thanks my friends for their thoughts and prayers as well.

Stitched on today: Stitched on HoE Prairie Schooler Exchange, and on Morning Berries
