Diane Knott is an artist of considerable ability and fame in her line of greeting cards and designing fabrics. I have read her blog: firstname.lastname@example.org) and she mentioned wanting to try some silk ribbon embroidery. I had a Bucilla silk ribbon video around here so sent it to her with some bits of ribbon. Well on Thurs. night after we got back from having dinner with old friends I found her package in the mail. It consisted of one of her lovely brooches fastened to a tag she had made to put her pins on for when she sells them. She also sent me 3 of her beautiful cards she designs and a package of recipe cards. She probably has peeked into my recipe drawer here and seen the mess of paper and scribbles. At home I have a long wooden box filled with cards that go back since we were first married but I am not that organized down here. See something I like and it is rip. Also she sent me a beautiful tag she made and if you look closely you can see a dragonfly on it. I hope I got that in the picture.
Went to JoAnns again yesterday and had 2 - 50% off coupons. Well almost everything was on sale so used one on sewing machine needles and the other on another book - I know I should stop buying them but for 1/2 price of 12.50 I got a great one. The somerset magazines are 14.99 and only less 10% most of the time now so it is cheaper to buy a book - or at least that is how I justify it. I took pics and I will blog about it tomorrow after I have had a chance to read it more. I took pics today of it and some other things so all set there.
