Gift From Hazel

Look at this beautiful pillow I received from Hazel today in the mail!! She had it all nicely wrapped with a ribbon so when I opened it I was speechless! Even hours later, I still can't express how magnificent it is.

First of all the fabric she is used is awesome! It is ranges from green to blue-ish purple. The design suits me perfectly, too. The beads make it so sparkly, unfortunately that doesn't seem to show up well in the pictures. I can not forget to add how perfect her tassels look or how wonderful it smells of lavendar!



I LOVE the pillow, Hazel, and .thank you so much for making such a perfect gift for me!

I stitched on Above the Clouds today. Right now I am working on the dragon's head. Hopefully by the end of the evening he will have a head. Right now I seem to be on a roll with ATC since I didn't have the frogs come for a visit today. I will probably work on it tomorrow and then start on Krissy's stocking this weekend.

I am not sure what my next large stitching project will be. I could buckle down and finish Woodland Faerie but I don't have the peace and quiet to do that one yet. Oh well, I don't have to decide right now! Besides it wouldn't be fair to decide before I have chance to see what might be screaming at me to stitch at the LNS.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments on Geisha!

A great gift. Yes, sometimes those frogs make stitching so difficult. When are you going to your LNS?!! Have fun.

I just love this pillow! Such a beautiful job.

That's very fair and decent of you to give your LNS inventory a chance before you make your decision. :P

The pillow is beautiful, and with it smelling like lavendar I'll bet it does smell wonderful (I love the smell of lavendar). Looking forward to seeing your update of ATC.
