Today's mail brought my mini banner from my partner Joy, who also lives in Ohio...not far from me actually. She knows that winter is not a favorite of mine, so she went with a lovely pink theme for my banner. I love it! The little crocheted doily is so cute & the lace flower is the perfect reminder that spring is getting closer to us each day. Joy added touches of embroidery & some pretty pink beads, too...as well as some of the pink ribbon I sent to her in a swap last year.
You can see the details here. I love hand stitching & the bits of embroidery & embellishment here are so sweet.
Even the back of her little banner says spring to me...I can hardly wait until we'll have flowers & greenery outside instead of the dead looking trees & snow we have now.
I'm lucky to be able to mail to Joy for our February swap...I'm already pulling out fabric & trims to inspire me. You can read about our swap here at A Swap for All Seasons.
Thanks so much Joy...you made my day so much brighter!!!
