New acquisitions

Oh - how lucky I am. Yesterday the parcel arrived from Marika and today I had another exchange gift from Michelle. She made this beautiful embroidery - they call it a pin keep.


I will need some help with the french words on the top, but I love the flowers and leaves and especially the Ladybugs. Isn't it precious?



And then, my order from Amazon arrived. Oh such excitement, all at once.
"Our very own" (if I may use that phrase) Judy Laquidara's new book. And a 'how to' book for McTavishing. Not sure I could ever conquer it, but I do love it. She says to start practicing with paper and pencil. THAT I can manage.

Oh boy - busy times ahead!

Nice gift, well can't help you with the french, as I can't read all the words, but it looks great.

The pinkeep is very pretty. I cant see the word on the right. It looks like it says Joli ____ de Mai. Pretty something of May. If you can show me the other word I can help!

What wonderful things! I just got my Judy book this week, too. I love all the quilts in it. Judy's directions are always so easy to follow! As for McTavishing, yeah, you can do it. Just needs practice. I learned to do feathers by drawing them over and over when I doodled, so I'm sure the paper and pencil first will help. Just doodle!
