Lots of Excitement Around Here
And check out the cute piggy mug rug she sent!
Check out Greta's hair! Oh my! I am so amazed! How do you do thread art that delicate?
Thank you, Karin, for a wonderful swap package!
And now that Karin has also received her movie mini, I can share what I made for her. She said she liked old classic movies, and what is more classic than the Wizard of Oz? I had lots of ideas... and then I ran across this poster from the movie....
Here is my version of the Wizard of Oz...
I really had fun with this one. The covered button flowers were way fun. (Sorry for the cockeyed picture - I didn't realize it until I already had the parcel in the envelope ready to mail.)
And the embroidered phrase is my favorite one from the movie, and one that I wouldn't mind having hang on my wall.
And then, as if I don't have enough to do, in the last 24 hours I have signed up for four more swaps - three Flickr swaps and a private swap. Oh boy. They are so fun - and so stressful - at the same time. But I know in the end, I'll be glad I did them.
So all in all, it has been an amazing day! Truly LOTS of excitement around here!
