I've met many incredible internet/blogger friends since I began writing my blog a few years ago. Jeannie is one who never ceases to delight and surprise me. Like so many of you, she always leaves such great comments, and she sends the most wonderful little (and sometimes not so little) packages! She celebrated a birthday recently so I sent her a little bundle, and then much to my surprise, a bundle from Jeannie arrived in my mailbox a couple of weeks later! At first I scolded her for overdoing it and sending a thank you gift for a gift. Sometimes I just feel so inadequate in the gifting department. But, now that I've gotten over the scolding stage, I'm kicking back and admiring these beautiful pieces of indigo dyed fabric and floss PLUS the incredible wren that she printed, embroidered, beaded, and quilted for me! So, thanks Jeannie for being such a fabulous friend! Everyone should be so lucky to have a Jeannie!
Here's a snippet of what I've been working one over the past couple of weeks
I think this may be the last of my heron series. I had thought I'd simply call it "Blue Herons", but then I realized they were doing a dance, and like so many in the BP oil disaster, they were doing their last dance....so it's "Last Tango". I have cropped out a large portion of this piece (and it's a bit out of focus), but when I've added the remaining touches, I'll show you the whole thing.
