Timely Gifts

Jacky is a new friend of mine, we will meet in June but for now we have connected through a swap hosted by the lovely Dotee. On Tuesday I came home to this wonderful parcel of treasures. See the detail in those fabric inchies? The rusty birds I love so much, the fibres and rooster napkins. Last but not least the gorgeous tile pendant. I am so blessed by the thought that has gone into this precious gift.
My very talented friend Sulea had an ART from the heART give-away and I am so, so thrilled to be the lucky winner of this canvas. There is so much texture and detail in the background - I know that I will be picking this one up time and again. I have known Sulea through groups for a few years - but she is another treasure I have yet to meet face to face.
I really am so thankful for my on-line friends.

Hi Julie, I am SOOOOOO pleased your love all of your little gifties. It was such fun putting the package together for you (I had a little insight into what you might and might not like from other swaps we have been in). Cant wait to me all of you WA girls in June. Sulea, I think your work is superb, hope you will be at the camp to and we can meet.

Jacky is the greatest! Always puts so much love and detail in any of her art. And is so thoughtful with her gifts.

Her fabric inchies are awesome!! I am so pleased that you are sending each other little treasures.

And Sulea's work of art looks so stunning. It must be lovely to see it in real life.
