ATC Received

Val Thomas of Val's Musings (http://homeleightigger.blogspot.com/ )  is a marvelous fiber artist. In June, we swapped ATC's. We had so much fun, we decided to do it again!  Val sent me this:

Isn't this gorgeous? Called 'Neptune's Daughter' and sporting a 3-d face, and beaded, fiber hair, my 'sea maiden' sits on a background of turquoise and greens. She even has her own  dolphin to ride!     Val's stitching has captured the colours and the motion of the sea waves.                                                                        Thanks so much, Val! I love it!
I can't show you what I sent to Val: she hasn't received it yet. But once she does, I'll post a pic.
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz


  1. Suztats,
    That is beautiful! Perfect for you too. Just wondering how did she knows what you look like? Cause she sure has nailed you. You do spend time at your cabin by the lake & look in it. Now we all know what you see when you do..the beautiful lady in the water!

  2. This looks like a beautiful piece - I love the Caron threads myself. I can't wait to see the whole thing so hurry up and send it!

  3. I'd like to say, Bsotf, that she captured my looks perfectly. I'd like to, but I'd be lying. Perhaps she captured some of my spirit.

  4. I sent it, Jillayne, but I have to wait until Val receives it. Last time it took 2 weeks! I've used Caron threads on a different piece, which I'll post later today.


I love to read your comments!
