Good weather, no rain

It’s been such beautiful weather I have spent lots of time outside, plus this weekend we had a embroidery exhibit that I will write more about later. But today I thought I’d show you some of the cute stuff that has been raining in here. Thanks my friends!

Giveaway gifts I won (Photo by iHanna - Hanna Andersson)

I won a wonderful sponsor giveaway at Sweet Tidings. I got a whole box of yummy stuff which made me feel very lucky indeed. Soft wool, three cute fat quarters of fabric, magnets, tea towels and a vintage Jack and Jill with cartoon illustrations that are super sweet!

Zine by Deborah
I did a swap with Deborah and got one of her previous year zines. I think this is one of my favorites. It is called Small Art Quilts and it is about how you can design a series of small quilts. It’s a great tutorial and inspiration, and she also talks about elements and principles of design, and binding and finishing techniques. Fun read. I’m so into fabric right now!

Here are a few peeks of the inside;

And more fun stuff;

Painting by Chris
Chris of Prism Trail sent me this cute miniature painting as a gift. It now hangs above my bed, beside some paintings I painted last summer when experimenting with my own art.

Oh, and since I’m posting pretty items today, for my birthday I got mail from my friend Maria:

Stuff from Maria Lu
Skull card, green cloud pencil case and ?ber cute Japanese letter and envelope kit. Plus, a towel with owls:

Everybody, say: Awwww!

From my cousin I got a small notebook, a card with a sweet promise of future fun and candles bought at Bangkok airport. Lucky me.

Yummy yarn
This week I bought a skein of yarn, not for knitting but something else. Appliqu? beneath embroidery perhaps, or wrapping string? I’ll be back tomorrow.

    Hanna! I’m sorry my birthday wish for you is late, but WOW! You got some pretty, colorful things. Those owls are cool! And a great zine. So nice.
    Thank you for the shout-out. I’m so glad you like my little painting. I think painting may be my favorite thing and I’m learning a lot. And the things you share on your site always open the world of arty possibilities up to me and make me want to learn more of everything.
    take care!
