Oh What a Great Day

Today has been one of those days that you just enjoy every moment of, and then someone adds whipped cream and a cherry to the top!

Part of my whipped cream and cherry topping:

The ATC on the bottom right is MINE and it is in the January '09 Lake Murray Columbia magazine! I sent Sue Lenz my little ATC as part of her Cyber Fyber exhibit a little over a year ago. I was just playing around with some rusted fabrics and some old bits of lace that I had picked up at the thrift store. It was fun, but I really didn't think anything of it. I've viewed the wonderful exhibit online, and then today I received a copy of the magazine from Sue...and there was my ATC. I must say that I'm in great company: Virginia Spiegel, Karen Stiehl Osborn, Nellie Durand, and on and on! What a treat! Thanks go to Sue for spending the time and the $$ to send me the magazine!

I delivered a few of my new silk scarves to my friend John at Occasions by John & Troy this morning. So if you're in need of a silk accessory to top off your Spring wardrobe, go visit their lovely shop! This is MMMM: Turquoise:

I spent several delightful hours in the studio this afternoon: dyeing another scarf, a yard+ of some yummy silk charmeuse for a blouse, and also painting some cotton for other projects. Our weather is incredible, and absolutely perfect for my studio time!

Hope you've had a great day too!

I love your ATC. I looked at it on the Cyber Fiber site. Very cool. The Cyber Fiber thing looks like it was fun to be part of and then to get your work pictured....
Nice scarves too.

Forgot to say how much I like Hector. And that's a gorgeous scarf. You're going into spring, we have autumn/fall. Cooler at night but still pretty hot during the day. XO
