Bookmarks Done!

I finally finished stitching and putting the backings on all my bookmarks. Dorothy sent me hers as well - they are so cute and beautifully done! - and the package is on its way to St. Judes Hospital. Here's a picture of all dozen of them. Mine are the two "I [heart] to Read", the rose, the elephant, the ghost and "Read" with the little animals on the letters. I'm thinking of trying to get people to do a batch for a late spring mailing. It really feels nice to do something creative and then send it off to brighten a stranger's life, particularly a child's. If anyone reading this is interested in participating, please let me know.

Mid-October Update

I finally had time to sit and work on my WF, and I completed another whole portion of her wing. One more portion of wing and half of her lovely face to go and then I'll be done with the first of the four pages of design. Obviously, she will NOT be done for this Winter! But I will continue to take advantage of my Sunday afternoons and holiday time and finish her for next Winter. So here's the latest look at her.
