Blessings from Friends

Hello my friends! So sorry I have been gone for 3 weeks!!! I think I had a party hangover!!! LOL!! I must admit... I still have a few more party guests to go visit, but I promise I will get there soon!!!

 I wanted to share with you all this most lovely gift I recieved from Suzy of Suziqu's Threadworks.
Suzy is a most talented fabric artist who makes fabric journals that are absolutely yummy! She lives in Australia and we became friends last year after I followed a link over to her from Pinterest. Well I did some blog work for Suzi and she very sweetly sent me this lovely wall hanging as a thank you. (She didn't have to, but I'm sure glad she did!! LOL)

 The details are just lovely and I will proudly hang it in my studio to remind me of her friendship ans marvel at the way Blogland can make friends of women from all the way on the other side of the world!!

The other thing I wanted to show you is this gorgeous scarf that I purchased from Stephanie, The Queen of Dreamz. I bet a lot of you saw it in her Where Bloggers Create party post. I fell in love as soon as I saw it. (I have a thing for scarves) When I inquired about it, I was so surprised no one had snatched it up!!! I immediately bought it and have already worn it. Stephanie makes these scarves from vintage materials and her prices are soooo reasonable! I love my scarf and I love my wall hanging!  Thank you so much ladies!!! You make Blogland a beautiful place to be!!

Oh isn't Suziqu the BEST artist EVER? I won a fiber album and extra fiber goodies from her and blogged about it here. I'm still trying to decide what to do with it and just take it out to pet the soft fabric and dream about what to put in it!

Beautiful Karen, what a wonderful gift to a very deserving person. Steph is doing great with her Etsy shop, so glad you purchased the scarf and she does make lovely creations and is a sweetheart too! I haven't finished visiting blogs either and figure it will take me all year. Hugs and love sent your way! Marilou xoxo

A lovely scarf and wall hanging. I like the way both are made from old bits and pieces that make them unique. It is great to see what other makers are making, and blogland brings all of us together. Thanks to the 'where I create' party I have found lots of lovely new people to follow and learn from :-)

That wall hanging is beautiful, Karen! What a lovely gift. Love your scarf, too.

What a beautiful gift and I LOVE the scarf. I'm headed over to see both of there sites after visiting here, lol. Scarves are a relatively new love for me, but I'm hooked and am on a constant quest to find new cool ones, lol.
