Very Special Gift

I received this unbelievably beautiful gift at Christmas from my wonderful friend Victoria Adams Brown.  I have always been in awe of her art work and her books and to have her create this piece just for me is beyond amazing.  I love all the fabrics, colors, picture, buttons, embroidery etc etc.  I am attaching a large image so you can enjoy it too.   Vickie also owns Ribbonsmyth (my favorite place to shop for ribbon, charms, embellishements, trims, dyes, etc) and was the organizer of Way to Women's Wellness of ArtBra and Donated Crazy quilt fame.  You can see more of Vickie's amazing work on her blog  Thank you so much Vickie.  I can't tell you how much it means to me.  I still haven't found the perfect place to hang it but it will be somewhere I can see it all the time.

Doll Club Doings

We had a wonderful meeting yesterday.  Small turnout but still a joy of a day. Some of us worked on a new little project mentioned on one of the yahoo groups I belong to, Friends of Cloth Dolls, which were fabric birds.  Pattern can be found here

Here are some pics of my finished bird.  I added wings and legs along with a few embellishements and LOTS of Stickles Glitter glue.
