American Samoa

Let's keep them all in our hearts at this terrible time. One of our own, Barb, lives there and I'm anxious to hear that she and her family are ok.

EDIT: Please visit Barb's blog by clicking on her name above to read her account of the earthquake and tsunami. I'm so happy to hear she made it ok.

A beautiful gift!

Look at this pretty pincushion! It is from Ruthie all the way from Israel! It's called a biscournu (sure hope that's spelled right). I just love it! Ruthie also sent a pin that says 1948-1998 Israel Jubilee on it, a blue fat quarter, another cute little pincushion and a wooden thimble she painted.

Here is what I sent her. I forgot to photograph the bag I put it in.

Baby Butterfly

In a few short weeks, this egg that was laid at 5:30, will be a beautiful Monarch butterfly.

This is a Damselfly. It is called a Citrine Forktail and is 0.8-1.1 inches long. This is an adult male.

Here it is

20,000th visitor was from Auburn, Washington. I'm getting the details of my giveaway gathered. It shouldn't be too long.

Here's looking at you, Kids.

I am seriously getting close to 20,000 visits! I cannot believe it hasn't even been a full year yet. I am going to have a give away. Don't know what yet so stay tuned!

edit: I thought it hadn't been a year but in fact, my year was in August! All this time I thought it was December. Now I know I have to make something nice for the giveaway.

Saying goodbye to a fellow dollmaker

Some of you will remember Beverlay Linton from several doll lists. She passed away today. What a sweet lady. My condolences go out to her family and friends. I had her in a Snow Queen swap, o1/02. Here is the doll she sent me.

In tears, hurt feelings

EDIT: I'm tired of seeing this horrible person's email here so I'm getting rid of it. I love each and every one of you for sticking up for me. Thank you all so much.
