Yup, I won her recent giveaway, and she sent me some cool stuff.
Some of her gorgeous hand dyed thread - yum! The green and purple one is called Purple Mountain Majesty, and the other pinky gold & burgundy one is big ol' hank of Torch Lily! (I need to keep Miss Lily away from this. Don't want her to carry a torch for it - or carry it off!)
Plus Jess sent me a buncha beads and neat findings! Wow - I'm a happy camper!
I'm doing a bit of tatting for a friend, a present for her since she has a new grandchild. My friend makes custom christening gowns and asked for some tatted edging for the top and sleeves. So I'm making the top edging here, some that Jon diagramed. Oh - the shuttles are ones I picked up at Tat Days, done by Shuttle Lab Trends.
It's a bit cooler here and some of the leaves have started to change. These are dogwoods, which produce berries that the birds feast on. The leaves will get much redder before they're done.
We've turned off the air conditioning and have the windows open night and day. I love fall!
