The Mail Stole My Voice

I recently participated in a 1 -4-1 Art from the HeART swap with the beautiful Lisa (Oceandreamer). My parcel arrived in the mail today and left me with my heart in my throat... Apologies to Lisa as the flash on my camera has made the glossy sections glare. This beautiful quiltie is about 8" x 8" and features my very favourite wild animal - the elephant - and a lovely Indian theme. I have already hung this one in my kitchen.
Next I opened a packet containing these fabulous fabrics and the felt balls. I have a felt ball necklace I bought last winter and am wondering if I can combine felt and Nina knots to make a bracelet .... the possibilities.
The final parcel contained this postcard size self standing portrait which is on a bookshelf, but will make its way to school - to decorate my desk there.
I was blessed beyond belief. Thank you Lisa.

Everything is just beautiful but then Lisa always does beautiful art. I love the quiltie with the elephant....I love those gentle giants of the jungle.

I keep hearing you mention Nina knots....what are they?? The felt balls are so bright and cheerful. I think they'd make a wonderful bracelet.
