Wonderful surprise in the mail and new project

Yesterday I received an act of kindness package from my dear friend, Trish "ladybug",,
she used to have a blog but closed it. We still keep in close contact and have developed a
wonderful friendship.
  She sent me some of her heirloom sunflower seeds and also some sunflowers that I am going to
dry. I think I will dry them and display them in an old bowl.
 Thank you Trish, your act of kindness has touched my heart.Most of all I cherish our friendship.
With working so many hours my crafting is on the back burner, I am working on a project
from Briar Roots Primitives, it is a pillow with some wool applique, I am probably about
half way through, I will show pictures when I finish. I just can't wait, I really love the wool applique, and love old mason jars.

Spring Break

This past week was Spring Break at school, so did I ever have a busy week, I did hair two days in my hair salon, had a Dr. appointment, went to visit my parents, got my car inspected and oil changed, went to an outlet mall and did manage to finish two small crafts. I made myself a Summer banner and I finished a penny rug project. What do you think??

fabric and wool

The backing is from an old army blanket

Banner has three layers burlap, fabric and muslin

Jar with candle burning inside
