"You like me, you really like me!"

I want to thank my wonderful mechanic (The Mister), the fabulous artists at the paint shop, of course I have to thank DuPont for making the wonderful color (pure fire) and all the fans who voted for me!

Okay, it's not a gold statuette, but it is fun to get an award!

This is one of the projects that moved forward on the completion timeline.

I guess I could have pressed it before I took the photo!!

For some reason, this teapot was a tough one to get through. I think that I did not press the transfer long enough and the stitch lines were not as distinct as they should have been. It was difficult to make progress. I carried it all the way to The Frozen North and back, last month, with about 10 hours of airplane time which is usually prime for stitching. I am glad to say it is complete!

Garden update!

This is my kitchen garden today. The paperwhites are my second crop, the bulbs are my souvenirs from The Frozen North. The others are making sloooooow progress, but progress all the same.

I am looking forward to a weekend at home. I hope I am able to find suitable fabric and motifs for the next Grandbebe quilt from the stash!

I will let you know what I find!!

I have always liked you. Always.

Also, the teapots are gorgeous. She'll be sorry she didn't want a Christmas present!
