I found the perfect thing during a ETSY surf session at RING RING RING on ETSY:
Graciously and going beyond the call of duty, the shop HAND-DELIVERED the ring to my daughter yesterday on her birthday! Anna was very moved, as was I!
My mom is, indeed, Anna’s guardian angel!

Today’s sock project from my cornucopia bin of delicious socks bought recently at Sockshop on Haight is a sock cat in pjs and his best friend, a sock bird!
The red-heeled sock cat reminds you to take a look at your habitual routines and make some fresh changes, as well as to be more flexible in your thinking. And this is best done in PJs! The sock bird reminds you take time for yourself sometime, stay home and be surprised by the rejuvenating powers of simple comforts!

5 year project! Handmade, no machine stitching.
This multi-media quilt /tapestry/wall panel measures 54″ x 90″ and truly is one of my favorite pieces that I have done. The tapestry/quilt, begun around 1998-2000, was inspired by the book “ELIZABETHAN TREASURES- The Hardwick Hall Textiles.” A very important and personal piece. I studied Elizabeth I in depths about 10+ years ago and this piece is an ode to the incredible craftmanship of the Elizabethan artisan and a celebration of those motifs.
The image is of Elizabeth Tudor at her coronation. In her hand she holds a book containing embroidery studies of Mary Queen of Scots to comment on their relationship.
The quilt is in three layers and the batting is cotton. I have purposely left the right bottom half “un-finished” with a needle inserted into the embroidery to maintain the relationship to history.
The back is exposed to purposely show the stitching.

I am absolutely head over heels in love with my recycled denim purse from Jenna’s Red Rhino! How cute is this?!
The craftsmanship is astounding and I love the lining and extra pockets inside. Not to mention the logo! And it has a sturdiness that I need; I cram my purses with tons of stuff! I LOVE IT!
Jenna’s Red Rhino on ETSY is a cornucopia of amazing items from corsets, to hats, to pillow covers, to cat treats etc.
Jennifer sent my cats a special treat: a delicious cat canoe!
It envelopes a cat just as they like to be enveloped. The sponginess is so cozy. My cat Violet, usually very timid, took 2 seconds to claim ownership!
