Welcome to my place where I share my tatting, painting, paper and fabric creations. I love to experiment with many elements and to take photos of my little corner of the world. I do hope you enjoy your visit.

Surprise Package and Spring Arrives
I found a surprise in my mailbox!
Inside was a beautifully embossed card with added bling and a figure.
See the goodies inside the card? An ATC, a ribbon with metallic leaves, a large, lush ribbon festooned with sequins, beads and metallic thread, and 3 blinged leaf motifs. Beautiful!
The ATC has glass beads, threads, a metallic stamped leaf on a background fabric that shimmers and changes colour
Another shot, showing the colour variation. So pretty and well done for a first ATC!
The smaller motifs are embroidered, multi-leaf stems. Each is outlined with gold thread, and has a gold trimmed, tiny mirror.
Aren't they pretty?
Deepa sent all these lovely embellishments to me! Such a wonderful surprise! Thank you so much Deepa!
I am blessed with a lovely and generous friend.
How have you been blessed today?
Spring arrives tonight. It's not soon enough for me! Now, if the snow would just melt, and the temperatures warm up, I'd be happy.
A little note: I'll be taking a 2 week break from blogging. A few things going on right now will be claiming most of my time, so, although I may be able to blog hop now and again, I probably won't be posting. Have a great 2 weeks!
