Oh, you will need to hurry. There is only a short time left... Whitney of Whisker Graphics is hosting a give away of one of my matryoshkas! Please go on over to join in. Her give away closes on Monday, August 2nd.
You aren't going to belive it, I have the nicest tale of a true blogging friendship. A short while back Melissa, one of my readers who frequently has left me kind words of encouragement or thoughtful comments wrote me an email to tell me she was putting together a little package for me. That started it all off, the delicious anticipation of this mystery package coming from far away.
Then it arrived! The most marvelous package of goodies of the finest kind has arrived. I don't know how I can begin to thank you Melissa for the treats! The excitement and pleasure I had in opening up this pretty package is difficult to describe. Above you can see two patterns from Melissa. They look like great fun to make.
What gorgeous bold and bright fabrics, and so many of them! Plus, something new to me, velvet rick rack. Oh, this is so pretty and soft. I had never even seen this line by Jane Sassaman before and it is so fun and colorful.
The fabrics called to me and I wanted to make some wonderful new dolls to match the delight I felt in this kind and generous gesture.
Here is Fru Strandenes, a sweet and sleepy little decorative charmer. Thank you ever so much Melissa for all this fun!
