A Finish!

This morning at 5a.m, I finished backstitching my Kokopelli Dancer.  I started this small piece in Baltimore a little over a week ago; between projects I managed to finish; loved working this piece; love the colors and a big thank you to my friend Meari for so kindly RAKing me this leaflet.  I plan to do another to match; just have not decided which one.

Great Gift from a Dear Friend

I received this huge box in the mail yesterday, and this is what was inside!  My dear friend Chris, made me this 'hug bunny' to cheer me up.  She is just gorgeous; Chris does such fantastic sewing as well as cross stitch and other crafts!  Enjoy.
