VICTORIAN CRAZY QUITED ATC MASTERPIECE

There are no words to describe how amazed I was when I opened the envelope that held this Victorian Crazy Quilted ATC!
I have the purrrfect bejeweled frame to display it in...
Please click and see the detailed stitching on the different fibers...
and the purple and white edge stitching...
This ATC came to me from my friend, fiber artist extraordinaire Lorraine Layne. Thank you so very much...how can I possibly measure up with my return?

My SKETCHBOOKS ARE DONE and in the mail for the January

I loved stamping these images for my new books for my Sketchbook Club...photo paper is awesome to stamp on...so crisp and clear each tiny detail becomes magic! I hope all the recipients will like the themes I have selected for them...(PS: If I have misspelled any words...sorry...for some reason my stupid spellchecker will only check in GERMAN!!)

Lorian Baker of MWS sent me this card that began my love affair with snow flakes...so this lead to the purchase of a cuttlebug embossing machine...

Beth Wiley sent me the bird ATC you see below the one I designed in our January MWS Mingle swap. Great minds think alike...birds and ice flowers!

ANJA more Weihnachtszauber!

Christmas brings many treasures from my dear friend Anja in Germany! I love the golden red angel she made into a paperdoll and the vintage napkins she included. Two of the crystal charms have been made into my newest favorite pair of ear rings! Weihnachtszeit is a magical time and I am thankful to you Anja for delighting me like a child with your treasures....
