I've Got MORE Mail

In the post today . . . cards by Gemma!

What lovely note cards these are!  I know you can't see it in the picture, but there a touches of glitter in the center of each flower.  Thank you Gemma!

It's been pretty busy and a little hectic here the last couple of days . . . and it snowed again today (mostly flurries, but still . . . Ugh!)

There was a little booklet we got at mass on Ash Wednesday with ideas and things we could do during Lent and to prepare for the coming of Easter.  One of the things was to prepare a spot in your home as an alter for the Bible and to do daily readings and reflections.  I made this runner for my credenza with some of those purple fabrics I got last week.  I did a simple applique design with gray silk and the purple fabric used as the backing.  The ends are edged with a simple beaded border (can't see that in this picture though).  All in all, I think it turned out pretty nice!

I had planned on spending tomorrow in my studio, but it looks like my older son is going to need a wisdom tooth extracted so I'll be spending my day at the oral surgeon.  Hopefully, I will be able to get some time in to create some art and work on the little dragonfly wall hanging I was planning on finishing.

Hope to be back again sometime tomorrow!



  1. The runner is beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Glad you received your cards.
    Enjoy them in health and happiness.
