Just to prove I haven't been idle...

Some of the things I've been working on recently have now reached their destinations so I can post a few pics (some of you will have already seen them on the recipients' blogs).

This suitcase, packed ready for a trip to her favourite overseas holiday destination, Scotland, is now in the possession of Rosanna (La Casa Rossa and La Stanza Di Giuggiola) in Genoa, Italy. Unfortunately it doesn't contain flight tickets, sorry about that Rosanna ;)

Ira in Finland (merry jingle crafts) has also received her package which included an 'old and worn' carpet (actually a scan of a very old book cover) and made to measure bookcase for her dark house inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven", plus some 'old' books and printies including portraits of Poe and his young wife. All photos courtesy of Ira - something has happened to my memory card and lots of my photos have vanished :(



I've had fun making these very diverse bits and pieces, and others that are about to go into the post, or are in transit - and then of course there's the holiday swap which is close to being able to be revealed too!

Oh Norma ... What wonderful things you did to the Poe house ... I love the library and the ephemeris. The carpets, unfortunately you can not see well ...
Damn this technology!
About Swap, do not wait for the 16 would open packages?
Catherine is hated camping!
I am undecided on what to do

Norma, thank you for including me as a lucky recipient of your wonderful treasures! I received a surprise package in the mail yesterday! Thank you! I just posted pix of the wonderful goodies Mercedes sent us. As we are through with hay for a while (or until we get some good rain) and Shop Hop will be over after this week, I can get some things finished to send to Mercedes! You know I cherish your friendship!
