Just stoppin in to let you know all is well, and thank you all very much for your prayers for my mom......they're working! She's doing much better and should be walking again soon. I tell ya, she's one indestructible lady!

I thought I'd let you in on some of the going's on lately. First up, I have to show you the amazing gifts I received from Paulette of "Beedeebabee." She's such an amazing talent and she kindly gifted me with two of her specialties......hearts. Paulette dear, I cannot thank you enough, they are precious and will be treasured for many a year.
|This is one I received from her (it's stunning) and I was able to|
wear it to the open viewing of the newest Mormon Temple
here in Gilbert, AZ. Needless to say, I received many
compliments on it.
|This is one I asked her to make for my mom since her favorite|
color is purple, again stunning workmanship.
Next up.......my youngest sister, also named Jenny, had her birthday recently. I asked her if she wanted any of my sculptures (oddly enough I don't give them away to my family) and she asked if I could make one of her favorite pet (out of the 15 or so that they have) and so here's Michie:
|Michie is a Chihuahua. I have to say, this one turned|
out so darn cute, it almost didn't leave our house.
|My hubby, myself and our youngest daughter all fell in love|
with this sculpt and didn't want it to leave.
You'll definitely want to click to enlarge these images, just to check out the details.
|A bag full of eyelet samples that just take my breath away|
in their beauty. I don't know what I'll do with these yet,
probably just stare at them for a while.
|I found some lovely handmade tatting and other laces, too.|
I'm collecting items because my oldest daughter, who is
pregnant with my first grandchild, has asked me to make
a blessing gown.
|This is a funny game I found, from 1903.|
It's pretty much a complete game, but the
box was deconstructed. This is an image
of the top of the box.
|Some of the playing cards.......those graphics are just amazing.|
Last, but not least, I will be published again..........yay! This card will be published in the "Somerset Studio Gallery" coming out June 1st. Look it up when it's available..........;o)
That's it for now, I'll be back again with my visit this weekend by a lovely artist named Ruth Morris. She's coming to stay with me for the weekend, and we'll be doing all kinds of crafty things.
