A Special Day!

Yesterday, I was honored to meet Barbara, my mystery visitor!
She made me this darling salt cellar pincushion as a thank you for my SAL.
She had a feeling I would like something so small!
I also got to see her quilt in person and it is lovely.  She plans to hand quilt it.
She frequents Scottsdale during her time off from teaching 4th Grade, so I hope we will see each other again. 
My kit for the Mistletoe project arrived from Debbie of Wooden Spool Designs.
A special thank you to her and I encourage you to visit her here.
If all this was not enough, we also had a snow storm here in the desert!
You will have to look closely to see it on Daphne's fur and flurrying in the air around them!
I know that you all experiencing real snow are laughing right now, but it was a treat for us.
Daphne, however, did not enjoy it as much as we did!
Happy New Year everyone!
Wishes for health and prosperity; but most of all, finishing all those UFOs and WIPS!

Hi Daphne! You look like don't know what to do with the hail? Limo was the same way. Happy New Year to you and your family!!

We would be just as excited if we had the amount of snow you received. A few years ago we actually received 3" of snow and it shut down the entire city until noon - lol!
Your little pincushion is adorable. I look forward to seeing your completed mistletoe. After seeing yours and other wool creations I just ordered a kit today (like I need another project).
Happy New Year to you and your family!!
