This is the piece that thrilled me most yesterday:
It's called a biscornus and it was designed and stitched by my wonderful blogger friend Eva. You can read more about these and see more of Eva's fabulous work here.
I had been gifted with two large bags of wool batt from my friend Molly's Mom, Judy, and since I knew that Eva prepared wool batt for her biscornus, I decided to share my wonderful gift with her. (Judy raises sheep and then when they are shorn, she has this wonderful batt. All of the lanolin feels so good on your hands....you almost hate to cover it up!) How thrilled I was to receive this biscornus in return! And since I'm doing so much more hand stitching these days, my gorgeous biscornus will get a lot of use! Here are two more views of it:
Also in the mailbag was a package containing a gigantic silk screen and squeegee from Pocono Screens. I can hardly wait to get started using it! Last but not least was a package from Dharma with some wonderful cotton scarf blanks. I'll share pics of these once they are dyed up.
And today my new laptop arrived! YAYYYYY!!!! So now I've got to finish up this post and go play with my latest new gadget!
