The mail is here! The mail is here!

I got not one, but TWO lovely packages in the mail today.....
1) from Gaby, my Just Nan exchange! She sent a beautifully stitched biscornu, a Just Nan pattern ("Love and Roses") with beads, and a nice piece of a natural evenweave. Thank you so much, Gaby, I love everything!!
2) Some things I won on eBay....a Sweetheart Tree sampler ("There is Always Music") that I thought I might modify as a wedding piece for my sister, and a kit from Black Swan called "Fairy's Gate" which I'd never seen before and thought was cute.
The verse on the Sweetheart Tree pattern reads "there is always music amongst the trees in the garden...but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it." And "Fairy's Gate" has 2 dainty fairies playing on a sundial with the verse "far beyond the garden gate, time stands still as fairies play." You know, I think I even have a piece of fabric in my stash called Fairy Garden.... :)

Erin looks like you had a fantastic mail day! For me they are few and far between, but that's because I choose not to do any excahnges, etc at the moment. Its so easy to get wrapped up in those things!

The biscornu is beautiful!

Lovely biscornu from Gabi and great new patterns. :)

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
