She created the yo yo and embellished it with beads and golden paint. I love the Inspire charm.
I love this tag that she made. The photo doesn't do it justice, it is very subtly shiny and so pretty. The whole fabric book was full of tags like these, she said it was a Christmas tag book.
See this beautiful coat? She also gave it to me. She bought it years ago but it no longer fit her and she thought it would fit me and it does! What lovely colors! It was purchased in England from a place that raised the sheep that were sheared to make the yarn and wholly created right there!
The generosity was rather overwhelming and much appreciated. Susan has a lovely blog, Art of Mine, and shows some of the beautifully crafted things she creates. What is amazing to me is that I know she has problems with her eye sight, and yet she can make these lovely items that require her to endure the discomfort of eye strain, but she is dedicated enough that she works around that problem as best she can. Thank you so much, Susan! I am honored to receive these gifts from your heart and hands.
Here on the farm we are making sure that the animals are all on high ground due to the flood watch we are currently on. It has been raining and very warm, we call this type of storm the Pineapple Express, it comes over from Hawaii way rather than the storms that come down from Alaska bringing snow and cold. It is 53 degrees Fahrenheit outside now at 7:30pm. That's about what it was last summer here. There is water running everywhere, bubbling up out of the ground, dripping off every twig and branch. I hope you all are staying safe and warm, I know there are bad blizzards in the midwest part of the country.
