Right here, right now

Today this little beauty turned up in my mailbox. Isn't it gorgeous? It's from Gina. The colours reminds me of the beach and the texture is amazing. Thank you Gina!

I'm working on a few things right now but I don't have anything to show you yet. The TIF piece is about my trip to Gotland that I've been telling you about. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but the reson for the trip was to celebrate my birthday. I turned 40 while I was there. That's a halfway mark in it's self don't you think.

I'm also making some ATCs that I'm going to bring to The Embroidery Symposium that I'm going to the week after next. Hopefully I'll find someone there who is willing to swap with me. I'm very excited about The Symposium. I'm going to take a workshop for Tilleke Schwarz and meet up with a Susan and Sara. WoHoo!

Congratulations on reaching the age when life begins (as they say)! Glad you had a lovely trip to Gotland. I am so envious of you: a workshop with Tilleke Schwartz AND meeting up with Sara and Susan. If I can sneak away to Sweden, can I hide in your handbag? I'd love to attend an embroidery symposium and meet you and these other ladies I'm so fond of in blogland.

I'm so sorry for the delay in sending my swap ATC - I've been so poorly I've been up to doing very little for such a long time. My spirit's very willing but my flesh is very weak just now. Hopefully I'll soon be better and brighter and making again.

Best wishes, my dear.

Hi Annica,
I am 41 soon! EEK!
I saw Tilleke Schwarz work at the knitting and stitching show.
I have her book.
How fantastic, look forward to hearing how you get on.
