Oh Happy Day!

It was just too cold to walk outside today (19 degrees).  So I went to the Y.  It was nice to see my regular walking friends.

I finished up the Heart of Elizabeth.  Happy dance time.

I dug around in my stash and found some just plain black silk dupioni for the backing so I can finish-finish it off very soon.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  And I'm really happy to have finished it.  It was a nice break from Dudley and Home Sweet Home.

Then I got great mail yesterday!  The mailman brought me two of the kits that I ordered from Jenny Adin-Christie.  (Not the wren - yet.)  I'll show you one today and one tomorrow. There are so many pieces to these kits.

 They are all nicely labeled too.  I think Jenny's mother does a fabulous job putting them together.
There is a 21 page booklet of instructions too.  Everything is in a tote bag.
My friend Janet did this one and has it all framed.  It is beautiful.
Could I resist starting?  Are you kidding?  I had to put in a few stitches.

The amaryllis has a tiny petal sticking out of it.
It looks to be white.  We'll see.
Have a fun day!


  1. The heart is so pretty.
    Looks like you had itchy fingers to start something new. :)
    Can't wait to see more.

  2. Hello Amy, across the pond again. Please don't give up blogging, I know you've had some unkindness, but there is the rest of us who admire your work. Where did you find the Elizabeth kit. Being in England I would probably have to buy overseas, but that's ok. She totally intrigues me, all the different techniques, what a challenge. Your work is beautiful. I think you might be right with the amaryllis, it looks like it could be white, isn't nature wonderful. Looking forward to hearing from you more.
