Inge's beautiful fiberart postcard

Hiding amongst all the unpaid bills and unsolicited advertisements was this wonderful piece of fiber art from my friend Inge in Denmark ... it is just gorgeous! Thank you so much, Inge!
Update: OOPS! Inge very sweetly asked me to turn the card around ... I had it upside down! Turns out, it wasn't an abstract Christmas tree as I had thought, but a Danish-style heart! So here it is in its correct orientation. Even better this way!

A fun surprise in the mail

A mystery box arrived on my doorstep today ... all the way from Hawaii! A gift-box of macadamia nuts from my long-distance friend Diedra, for whom I did a little FFAC shopping during Quilt Festival. Here's a picture of her funny address label and, even better, the Happy New Year card. Thanks, Diedra! The nuts arrived just in time to rescue me from the Dreaded Post-Holiday Letdown.
