My sister has received her birthday package from me so I can show you the little Jane Austen pillows I made. I liked how hers turned out so I made a small one for myself. The button on the larger one is from our grandmother’s button box. I also sent along other JA goodies that I know she has enjoyed.
Daniela has let me know that my squares have reached her in the Czech Republic. This bird is from Prairie Schooler’s Garden Beasties book #54. I love doing PS designs for the Fair & Square exchange. Speaking of PS designs, I did end up finding the green I needed to finish up my tiny Weather Wise project, I’ll share that in a day or two.
Tyler has a friend whose mom often sends things home to me when Tyler has been for a visit. She recently sent me empty eggs from her geese that I have in a clear glass jar and they are very pretty. This past weekend Tyler went for a visit and she sent home some homemade Huckleberry and Peach Citrus lip balm. I’ve been using this for 3 days and my lips feel wonderful!
Finally, I’ve finished stitching 1 Sarah’s ABC Pincushion (from the new Blackbird Desisgns – Thank you, Sarah Tobias book) and started stitching another. This first one is going to be a surprise for someone who I think will really like the colors, I think I’m going to make the second one for me, or I may stitch it a third time, it is really quick and I love using up pretty bits of linen this way.
