On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair...



Hello,

thank you very much for your kind comments of support and friendship,
with regard to my upcoming Workshop.   So very much appreciated. 

There is one place left on the Workshop!

I have also had a fabulous reaction to these bags that I have been making just lately.
Just popped this one into Etsyland.

I had the most wonderful package arrive yesterday, from my friend
RenaAskey from Wisconsin!

I have never received such a stunning envelope before...
 Her calligraphy is incredible.   I would love to be able to write so beautifully,
 the little notes she has written too...made me smile...
Miss Viv in Merry ol' England!...tee hee

Rena had kindly sent a piece of crazy quilt made into a stocking,
which I shall use each Christmas now...
 these lovely old pieces of pretty cotton, which I shall have lots of fun using...
I am, indeed, a lucky girl...thank you so much Rena.
Another big thank you to you, for stopping by. x

I LOVE that song. Thank you for reminding me that I have not listened to it in YONKS.
Good luck with the course, perhaps if I lived a smidge nearer I would fill the last place...Ax

Hello dearest V! I wish I could fill that last spot in your lovely workshop! I know a lucky lady will take it soon! I love the 'she loves to sew' brooch and the gorgeous bag! The details are amazing and so beautiful! Oh, just look at that artistic envelope! She writes beautifully and creatively! The stocking and fabrics are lovely my friend! That was sweet of her and I know you will enjoy them! Have a lovely weekend dear heart! Much love, P xoxo

Oh how sweet is EVERYTHING on this post, calligraphy - i never had the penmanship but just bought my middle daughter a quill & inks (holding my breath as she's clumsy) & she's loving them. Love Posie

What a surprise you must have felt when you received your beautiful calligraphied package. How clever and artistic...and, how perfect! She sent it to someone who is equally talented!
I hope your workshop goes well, my friend!

"Miss Viv in Merry Ol' England"!!! I prefer that address to proper addresses with postcodes and everything. Might take a bit longer to reach its destination though.......

BEAUTIFUL bag!
