I've had this parcel of happiness for a few days now - today, such fun to open - a gorgeous heart for the tree, a pressie for Sunday and a Danish chocolate to enjoy now ... like one? ... oh, you would, mine is nougat and sea salt, a wonderful combination. Bless you and thank you,Maria!
The words above are just so appropriate - just wait until I tell you! And the Perle stitching I love so much - my goodness, so even too - fabric by our own Lynette Anderson. I must now wait until Sunday to open the biggie, I just know it will be gorgeous. What can one say - thank you for sharing your happiness with me Maria. Thank you, too, Donna for all your organization, just wonderful!
I have had so many wonderful friends who have helped and comforted me for a couple of years now, and it thrilled me to give this special piece of artwork to a special friend. It is an art form called pyrography, woodburning done by Spencer James from the small town of Toodyay, north/east of us - I wish you could all enjoy the beauty of this blue wren in her home!
I've been meaning to tell you about this erasable pen, available just about everywhere, newsagents and food stores too - wonderful for marking fabric and iron away - I've tested it and am very happy and feeling and confident with it, but I'll be pleased to hear stories to the contrary if there are any. Now, the soap - just fabulous I was happily drawing away on fabric with what I thought was the pen above - oh, no, it was ordinary Biro. Panic, panic try everything, and this little beauty got me out of trouble - over here, I bought it at Howard's Storage, the best little saviour one could have - please have it on hand if you can.Now, I'll try to be brief - thank you all the prayers and good wishes since my car accident early November - no relief from pain has been forthcoming after over 7 weeks - the outcome is the sternal fracture is overlapping the fractured fragments and bony union, so I am now on morphine patches and waiting to see a cardio thoracic surgeon 8 January- until then I'll try to be good and try not to whinge too much, says she with gritted teeth and real tears, not crocodile tears as we say here!
I have lots of stitching to prepare to keep me in handwork if and when the time comes - meanwhile I'll raise a glass of champagne to absent friends, now that will make me feel a whole lot better - 'til next time
