Drive By Post...

I have to make this quick! I'm working later hours today and I seem to always jam pack too many projects into the hours between waking up and leaving for work. Before I go though, I want to share this quick update with you...

Over the weekend, I finished up BBD Loose Feathers Autumn...(please excuse the wrinkles.)



Now, on to Winter...

And then...I just had to show you this...it's too cute not to share it with you.



It's the Jeanette Douglas needlebook from the Dyeing to Stitch retreat last fall. The stitching was done by my friend Judy; I just finished it into a needlebook for her.




Cute, cute, cute. Well I have to go to work now. See ya!
