Great puzzle pcs.- and a win from MWO!

The puzzle pieces have arrived! How much fun to open the package and find all these special "Pieces of Friendship". These are from a fun swap that Pat Winter started. Everyone was to make four puzzle pieces using the prescribed puzzle shape. It was fun to do and to receive such great little works of art.





Pat Winters piece. Such tiny detail and fantastic stitching. Remember you can click on the photos for close up looks. But please don't judge the photographer!





Next is from Freda B. Now my photo really doesn't do this one justice. It is filled with bright sparkles and shimmering fabric. There is depth to this one too.







Next is from Alice Topp. What wonderful colors and beautiful stitching. Love the little face with the ribbon bow and pearls.







Last but certainly not least is from Laurie Walton! Such delicate workmanship. I can't believe the tiny, tiny little stitches. Look at the hole with the delicate webbing stitch filling it.

This was so much fun. I can't wait until Fall when we do it again. Thank you Pat!


Lastly I was thrilled to win The Mind Wide Open Challenge. I was up against some very talented people. Thank you to everyone who voted for me and to Gail for having such wonderful challenges. This image really "spoke to me". Everyone should check out her blog. (on the right side , there is a button).
