Gift, awards, progress

Today was a happy mail day for me ! (don't you think it should have an official happy mail day where we'll send each other a goodie? That will be a great idea, don't you think so? ) Well, I won Lady of the mist on Laural's blog !!! And look at what I got: not only she sent me the chart but she also added a very nice solo by Silkweaver Could she have a clue that I have an addiction not only for Santa but also for the Silkweaver fabbies? Thank you very much dear Laural, thank you for brightening my day with your special package


Sally and Daniela gave me this award (thank you for thinking about me !!! ):

Here's a description of this special friends award: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon's of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers. When you pass the award along please include these guidelines. Choose eight friends to share this with. (this is a very hard thing to do actually ... )

So the award goes to
Lauralness ,Marita ,Andie, Yvonne , Debijeanm , Carolyn NC , Pumpkin and Jean .

Meari gave me this award (thank you dear Meari !!! ):
A lot of you are creative persons so it's really hard to choose only 7 persons ... And the award goes to ( I feel I'm at the Oscars ) Wendy ( a very creative lady !!!), Daffycat (who create nice charts), tkdquintmom , Ginnie , barbibouille , Srinity , and Doris .

Now, you know what you have to do ladies: spread the joooooooooooooooy !!!

I couldn't resist showing you my latest progress. I guess I'm going to go back to blog everyday now as I cannot resist showing you my daily progress. Thanks Kathryn for the advice for the shading around the characters and objects ; I'm going to try that on a bright day but it really makes me nervous as I never did such a thing ...
No exercise for me today ... My body deserves a rest ... but I can always train my hands stitching, right?

Lovely day in the mail, Chiloe! Boo is coming along nicely. And thank you for the award!I love reading your blog and get inspired, so I doubly appreciate it. :)

Yvonne said...

I had always love Lady of the Mist! However, I am no master when it comes to beading, that is why I always stay away from MDs patterns. I can only drool at all those lovely finishes.

Thank you so much for this special friend award. Yes, it is not easy to choose 8 friends to pass this award to, as I don't have that many friends. I must take the time to read the guidelines.

You certainly chose a great fabric to go with your Boo.
