This flower is some sort of peony - another one of the 'donated' plants we have in our garden.
-- Robin Atkins is very generously sharing a free download of her 'One Bead At A Time' book. Believe me, there's some eye candy there that you have to see! Go here for the link.
-- you might also like to check out all the offerings at DMC threads.
-- if you are looking for embroidery floss (and many other needlework items) you might like to check out Herrschners. The U.S. site is here and the Canadian one is here. They carry both DMC and Anchor.
Today we are going to pick up #2 son and his fiance (they got engaged last weekend!) and also 49 copies of 'THE BOOK'. At the rate we're going with selling them, they might have to go into a second printing. Who would have known so many people would be interested?
Still working on the huge studio re-arrange of 2010. Next on the agenda is to remove all the books from that shelving unit and move it. While I'm at it, I'll take a good look at each book and try (key word is 'try' - VERY difficult for a bookaholic!!) to downsize my collection somewhat. Yah, right.
