I thought I'd double up on this post and do the two birds - one stone thing.
First of all, earlier this week was the TUSAL. Here's my "jar" to date, there's a lot of dark and light at the top there... the darks are both from my seasonal Mandalas and The Accolade and the light is from the Seasonal Mandalas. I really haven't stitched much lately... I've been doing a lot more reading than stitching. That's okay though, I've really not been reading much at all over the last few years so its okay to make up for that. I'd better get stitching if I want to meet my goals for this month!
Much earlier in the year Lillie and I set up a personal exchange. My gift to her is still on its way to the other side of the world. Hers arrived last weekend and I thought it would be perfect to go on display with my TUSAL. She stitched me this fantastic year of the dragon flat fold! She included a lovely little case and a year of the dragon bottle opener in a case. I don't know if Lillie knew it or not, but I am a Year of The Dragon Baby! How perfect was this exchange? I hope she likes what I stitched up for her!
