Great Song

It's amazing how some songs just continue to resonate through the years.
Led Zepplin's "Stairway to Heaven" is a good example.
Here's the  Link to Heart's (Ann & Nancy Wilson) wonderful cover of "Stairway to Heaven" from the Lincoln Center during the awards to honor Led Zepplin.
Wonderful - isn't it?

Pam's Work on Coleen's Woodlands & Forests Traditional RR block‏

Finally got my pictures loaded for my work on Colleen's Woodlands block.
I hope she likes it.

The large grass on the right just called for a mouse and frog.
The grass leaves needed some stitches too.
Here's a detail of the creatures I added. I had fun stitching these two!

Mister frog turned out  really well. Can't wait to see what the others add.

Ornaments this year

I love collecting glass Christmas ornaments.
Here are some pictures of those I used this year.

My polar bear to remind me of my trip to Churchill to photo the the polar bears.

Fools Gold #3 Karen's block

Karen's blocks are wonderful. She said in her book that she would love a dragon. Since I had a good design in mind I indulged and did one for her. I used some gold stretch-lame that Gerry sent me for the dragon's body. Even got to use the goldwork technique of putting the lame over felt padding. This gave the little fellow a lovely 3D effect. Also found a lovely hand-blown glass bead for the center of the gold flower he is crouching on. I am very pleased with how he turned out.
