You may be wondering why I'm raving about this. Believe me, I'm not a paid spokesperson for them. It's just that another great benefit of doing it online is they'll send you an email when your package has been delivered. And that brings me to this post. I recently mailed the latest Twelve of Us package to Carolyn and I just received confirmation that she's gotten it. So I'm free to share it's contents here.

It measures about 13.5" x 12". I blanket-stitched around each piece of sunflower and every berry and then added the tendrils using a stem stitch. Finally, I cut another piece of blue wool the same size and attached it to the back - again using a blanket-stitch. Here's a closeup of my stitching...

I also embroidered 3 towels for Carolyn's kitchen. Her kitchen is decorated with Blue Willow so I hope they fit right in.
I heard through the grapevine that my wool present is on its way to me right now. I'll be sure to share pictures when it arrives. And then I'll have to find a nice spot for it where I can admire it, but it will be no danger to Mr. Quilting Bug as he's very allergic to wool.
Another duo picture with Gabriel and Jack. It's a little hard to see, but Jack is rubbing her head against Gabriel.
