DD has returned to Denver. :*( She ended up leaving with 2 pair of legwarmers and a new rice bag in addition to her Christmas presents. I did this pair a little differently. Straight knitting instead of rib. She picked the yarn. Very princess.
She had burned the rice in her old rice bag by heating it too long in the microwave. Evidently everyone in the studio always knew when she was coming because of the burned rice smell. She has a new one scented with essential oil. They will smell sugar cookies now. :-D
Almost 15 months ago I joined a round robin
. It was based on rules that May Britt
had originally posted about one she had done. It sounded like fun and not a huge commitment so I signed up. This month is when they return to their original owners and mine arrived today. I absolutely LOVE it. I started with the little star up in the corner. I also sent a mini composition book with it and had everyone write something in it . It was so nice reading all the little notes with everyone's
thought processes. The appliqued flower is from a photo of a Civil War wallpaper design. I am so pleased and touched with the time and effort everyone put into making my little quiltlet
