Look what the mail man brought today - I'm still completely stunned and in awe. Nancy Murdock made a gorgeous piece of mail art and - what came as a total surprise to me - I was the lucky recipient. It was put in a clear plastic zip lock bag and it is SO beautiful. I love love love it. My husband and I were wondering how many people working at the postal services were admiring this. Quite a lot we think. It's pretty unusual AND gorgeous. The stitching - the fabric - the colors. I'm at a loss for words. Thank you Nancy, you brightened up my day. Thank you also for the nice finishing forms and the floss. Love those colors too - exactly my taste.
Feast your eyes on this beautiful piece of mail art:
I also have something to show - my first Christmas ornament this year. I chose a design from the "Just Christmas Ornaments" 2700 magazine. It is for an exchange on my favorite yahoo group "I love Cross stitch". It's quite a neat exchange. Every participant makes an ornament and all ornaments are sent to one of the moderators. Rene collects them all - enjoys all the ornaments while she's at it...lol - and then sends each participant one of the ornaments. Anyway....here is mine.
