Today I got the most incredible surprise in the mail! For no reason (except that she is generous, loving and talented) my friend Joanne sent me a beautiful polymer clay and fabric painting and one of her smiley pins - in my favorite color, red - that she made for a swap that i am not in. Aren't they just the best!
and there's more!
Joanne is a fabulous felter, and when she was visiting me i took out the felting needles i had bought ages ago and never tried, so she could teach me. But the needles had rusted in their package and the barbs had fallen off!....needless to say, they were useless. Sooo- the ever so thoughtful Joanne sent me a FELTING KIT! It has 4 different needles and a big block of foam to felt into, and then another bag with felting yarns. I am so excited to try it!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! JOANNE - I am just thrilled!
The Heliconia's are in bloom. We have them in red, yellow and multi. Here's a red one
Oh, and this is the side front yard where the trees got cut.....
