Fiber kelp

What is it that I love about blogland?

Oh, Yeah, because I get stuff like this in the mail!
I just love surprises on my front porch.
Well, most of them. The mouse guts my kitty leaves I could do without.

This is the beautiful mini quilt art that my swap partner Marilyn Butler sent.

I was happy to have received Marilyn as a partner. She too has a love for all things fiber.

The elegant mermaid is embroidered and swims amongst a pool of colorful fiber kelp.

Marilyn, I just love it and Genevieve thank you for hosting this swap.
You can see more of the mermaid swap here.

Blogland seems to open doors to magical places that lets the creative muse loose. What a fun swap and the colors are terrific. Where did you get this song...what fun! I love that you added music to your posts, it really sets the mood perfectly. Karen
