Subtitled: Summer House - Two Ways!
Yesterday my hubbie brought me a fat letter from the post which contained a birthday card and wee present from the ever-talented, thoughtful, generous, creative and kind Super-Star Vonna! She stitched me the most darling over-one version of LHN's "Summer House." As I opened the envelope, I exclaimed, "Oh, it's a fob!" and my husband said, "A bob?" And I said, "No, a fob, a scissor fob," and he said, "Oh, I thought it was a pillow for a mouse." At which point I was laughing out loud. You see, ladies, I have never owned a fob before . Now I know that will come as a shock to those of you have dozens of them, but I am still relatively new to the wonderful world of alternative finishes. :) Hence, the reason my hubbie thought it was a mouse pillow. Vonna, you know I love this beauty as I have already gushed via email, but thank you again, my friend!
Disclaimer: my camera is really awful with details, so I made a rather terrible scan to try to capture the details of this gorgeous stitching. Wish I could show it off better.
In other news, my mail art partner, Zalita, let me know that the mail art I sent her arrived safely to the other side of the world. Vonna doesn't know this, but I had selected summer house for this project along with some other Little House Needleworks motifs. This was also my first mail art exchange and I am pleased that everything arrived safely and really enjoyed meeting a new international friend.
