On my shelves today

Today I received the most thoughtful and beautiful birthday gift
from my friend Irene all the way from Portugal :)
She made me a hand embroidered birthday card,
a CD with my favorite portuguese music (Madredeus),
three beautiful hand sewn stuffed fabric strawberries and a little felt bluebird...
Irene, I cannot THANK YOU enough!!!
I LOVE everything :)
My inks were specially happy today & posed for the camera :)

New fabric I bought on my vacation.
Oh! the possibilities!

For Bea & Julia

These two bags will be flying all the way to Tenerife
in the Canary Islands for my two beautiful nieces.
(I wish I was flying with the bags too!)
The kitty & the horse are made from Mary Flanagan's felted wool
that I purchased from the amazing
Purl Soho shop

With my batteries fully charged,
ready to welcome my favorite season of the year: FALL.
Yes! Bring it on!

Thank you so much for all the sweet birthday wishes,
it was a wonderful day!
