FHFS Day 3, Nice Mail and Something Different.

Good morning everyone. Today when I dived into my box of goodies this one jumped into my hands.
Inside beautiful threads and a length of gorgeous fabric that would make a perfect table runner.
That thread on the right is just so Christmasy....the photo doesn't do it justice. I am going to have to think of something extremely special for this gorgeous group. LOVE!!!! Thank you Keryn xxx
I also received lovely mail yesterday...
a lovely "gingie" card and great magnetic bookmark from fellow "gingie" love Joy....
Thank you Joy it will be perfect for my Summer reading xxx
I also received the sweetest teeny tiny Angel from Liz from Village Quilters and a beautiful Dresden Plate card...
Thank you so much Liz...she is lovely xx You are all so very kind.
A little purchase that I made a while ago and been languishing in my cupboard and so I decide yesterday to have a little play.....coloured pencils! I had some very inferior ones from years gone by and decided to buy some "Artist" quality ones (sounds very highbrow doesn't it lol) but they were lovely to use.
Now the subject I decided would be something festive and what better than one of my favourite things.
The blending and shading need a lot more work but I am sure there are ways and means when you explore deeper....anyway it all amounted to FUN!!!
I am off to do some making of applique templates as I am going to play with my Deux Rouinerres Dresden Plates border.....some little birdies involved!
Remember to hug those you love.
