This is a lovely fiber Valentine from my good buddy Diane:
I just adore it and need to find out more about it. I think she must have gotten ahead of me and purchased an embellisher, what do you think? Inside the Valentine, Diane writes: "Osram ne Nsoroma African symbol representing love, harmony and feminine essence of life. Allistair Boody-Evans 2002" I confess that I have been too busy to look all of this up, but maybe later tonight I will get around to it! I am almost positive that Diane has dyed the lovely background fabric and felted the wool. Maybe she'll leave a comment and share with us exactly how she accomplished this masterpiece. Thank you Diane.......and you know that it arrived on the day that I needed it most!
The mail carrier also delivered this lovely little ATC from Susan Lenz. I found out about her Cyber Fyber exhibit in Columbia, SC through Virginia Spiegel's blog, and wanted to take part, so I promised to send Susan an ATC (and then I couldn't resist and wanted to trade a postcard too!) .
Here is Susan's wonderful ATC:
And there was also an intrigueing package from Hawaii! Gerrie has been purchasing some lovely Japanese kimono silks on ebay, so of course I had to go and take a look..........and look what I bid on and won:
Nobody else bid on this item, so I don't feel badly about having "won" it! I have no idea what I will do with them (probably fondle them for a good long while before I do anything else!) and I hate being a copycat, but these were just too exciting to resist!
This is one of the lovely pieces included:
And look at this little lovely:
And here's one more:
The one "low" spot of the day was a call from my Dermatological Plastic Surgeon telling me that one of the sites that she had biopsied last week came back as a "melanoma in situ". UGH She stressed that this is the best case scenario in that she caught it early and that it is not the kind that spreads internally..........so, we shall see! As I said last week, I have all the faith in the world in Katarina Chiller, and I believe every word that she says. So, I go under the knife tomorrow at high noon...........lunch at the Varsity sounds a whole lot better......even lunch at McDonalds would be a step up! Oh well! And so it goes.......................
