Come dance with me!!!!

September 19, 2007



Before I get into my happy dancing I have to show you a picture of our "Girlie dogs" and their toy box. Dan goes to yard sales and cleans up! The only problem is that Mollie (on the right) likes to chew the eyes out of the toys. Anyone else have a dog who does that? Now for my serious Happy Dance...here is my Coussin Mandala designed by Mariska and puschased from The French Needle. I started this ages ago to do as a SAL with Nancy. We both sort of dropped the ball on it but finally I got back at it, found that I had to order more thread....

A big THANK YOU to Myfanwy at Sassa Lynne for finding me a very close match ...so I could finish it. The thread is a perle called Hampshire Clay. Sassa Lynne's thread is available in Canada from http://www.cottonmillthreadworks.com/ and in England from http://www.sassalynne.com/


My photography skills are not the best but believe me it is a gorgeous pattern!
