I got stuff and more!






I am a very lucky woman for a lot of reasons. One is that I have a wonderful husband. I showcase my work here, but thought you would like to see some of his artwork. He is a very talented man that draws for me and has recently started painting. He has had no formal training, but I love his artwork. I have posted two of his drawings here.
The second thing is that I have great friends, some I have known for a long time, some for just a short time. Some live close and I see them all the time. Some I have never seen at all and are my online friends.
Today I opened my mail and I found I had received these gifts from some of my online friends. I got some of the most beautifully hand-dyed green fabric (my fav color) & some needles from Penny who is in many of my Yahoo groups. This gift was from an exchange on a new group, Crossed Exchanges. Speaking of which, I also received this cute little froggy kit from the moderator of the group, Evaline. I received it for being the first member. If you haven't checked it out, please do so. I think you will enjoy it.
Then I received the cutest arm chair stitcher's helper. It is in the cutest pink ribbon fabric. I love it. Twice in the past week I have sat on the point of my scissors. Now I can put it in the stitcher's helper so I won't sit on them again.
Thank you for being my friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this little blog of mine. And thank you friends for my wonderful gifts!

Your DH's drawings are fantastic, have you thought of turning them into xs patterns and stitching them. I think they would be awesome

You DH's art work is fantastic! I hope he does more. Who knows maybe someone will "discover" him and you'll all be famous. :)

Is that first drawing the one he gave me for Christmas? He really is talented and should show off his work more often.
