Three Happy Dances & Other Things


Myra's Give Away
I received my goodies from Myra . I was very lucky to win her blogoversary and birthday giveaway. In the box that the post lady brought I found all these beautiful things.
  • A zipper bag made by Myra in a colorful fall fabric.
  • A cute gift bag stuffed with candy corn and pretty variegated floss
  • A Tin Topper pattern by Sampler and Such
  • A pumpkin pin cushion stuffed with walnut shells
  • A tissue cover stitched with music note fabric
  • A piece of linen fabric
  • And a darling little bird all dressed up for Halloween
  • A beautiful candle mat with scented candle
Thank you Myra, you have certainly brought a lot of sunshine and happiness into my life.

Biscornu from Nita
Anne Les Petite Croix
"Carre Fleuri"
The Post Lady also brought me this lovely Biscornu from Nita . This was for Please Pass the Biscornu Exchange. I have seen this jewel and admired it and I am so thrilled. Thank you Nita, I love it

Tiny Treasures Too
Pinkeep
from Amanda
The Post Lady brought me a third package from Amanda. This one came all the way from Italy. It is such a gorgeous pinkeep. It is stitched on Fratelli Graziano linen. I have never seen it before but the little cherub looks lovely stitched on it. I love the way she entwined the ribbons around the edges and such a pretty color of blue.

On the stitching front I am making great progresss, I am finishing up another biscornu and have a pinkeep ready to get in the mail. I also have my pumpkin exchange stitched and ready to finish so it can be on it's way.
I have two pumpkin, fall  ornaments ready to be finished so I can add them to my collection. Hopefully over the weekend I can get these done.

I also saw a tutorial for crocheted ricrac. Want to give that a whirl. I looked at Hobby Lobby for orange or fall colored crochet thread. I couldn't find any so picked up some red. I figured I could use for Christmas ornaments.

We went to Golden Corral to eat and I am stuffed and ready to sprawl on the sofa.

I am so happy you liked all the goodies I sent you. Enjoy! You had some great mail days - the biscornu and pinkeep are both gorgeous. So, since everyone is asking about the pumpkins in your header - I just have to know if you made them too. :o)
