Lots of Typing - Not Much Stitching.

Today was instruction writing day.....ooohhh! How I love it! NOT! I was pleased to have made a fair dint in it but still have one large project to go but I am doing a Scarlett O'Hara and "I'll think about that tomorrow".
I did however get the most gorgeous little parcel in the post. Lovely Liz from Village Quilters sent me a beautiful card and inside was this little dazzler....isn't it lovely!
It is made from beautiful crystal beads and I wish you could see how it sparkles. It just so happens I had one of my smaller Christmas trees out for a photo of a project so of course I had to try it out to see how it looked. Beautiful of course.Thank you Liz I love it and shall treasure it. I have a Memory Tree that my friend Ann and I decided to start quite a few Chrismases ago and on it go all those lovely ornaments that are handmade by friends as well in my case beautiful ornaments that have been bought back for me as gifts from all over the world. I even have a notebook included with the givers name and year beside it. So Liz' lovely star will make it's way there this Christmas.
In between all this pattern writing I did get another mini stitched for my collection...here's a sneaky.

If I am really good and get my instruction writing finished tomorrow I hope to get a couple more stars made for the pressie box. I think I may actually meet my swap deadlines. YAY!

On a final note I am very relieved to tell you that in relation to my 'Advent Calendar' Folly of the other day my darling friend Ann is going to bring her basket of magic tricks down to me in the next little while and help me make it gorgeous....NOW! I am excited! It is such a blessing to have clever kind friends.
"And ya gotta have friends...la la la la la! (Sorry I am just really excited now)
Have a great weekend everyone.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  16. I love the idea of the memory tree...I have lots of ornies from friends through the years and usually include them on the big tree...I like the idea of a special one just for them. I like the gift ornie you received. I'm going to see if I can find the instructions for making it.
