Blogger gifts

Corrine at dosfishes sent me this gorgeous piece of art that she made.  It arrived on a gray day and it was as though a piece of sunshine came out of the box.  The photo does not do it justice, believe me, this piece just glows.

Close up on the hanger.
close up on the work.  You can get a small idea of the glowing nature of this piece.

She also enclosed these fabric rolls, all tied up with their own ribbon.  The ribbon will eventually go into my ribbon box and the fabric may end up being incorporated into a crocheted rug one day.
I sent Corrine this hat I made awhile back.  I used some fabric pieces she had sent to me.
It is reversible.  I am afraid it is rather big for her but I told her to just use it as a fabric bowl instead.   The blogging community has shown itself to be made up of some very giving, kind and caring people.  Thanks to you all and especially thanks to Corrine for these gifts and the gift of her friendship.  I cherish both.

Be well.

Photos up just fine. So glad to bring some sun to your damp part of the world. I love love the hat as you know, so it will get used one way or the other. I think it may go to the studio and be with your fabric heart. Thanks again, so glad I could send the smile back! xox Corrine

Corrine did beautiful work on the piece she sent you. It may not look as good in the photos as it does in person but it's still lovely. The hat you made is great. If I wore hats I'd want one of yours. Have a wonderful week.
