It occurred to me the other day that I was missing a "Lady" from awhile back. I'm really hoping that she finally got herself, but as yet, I really don't know. Alia and I corresponded in early April. She lives in Oman, but I sent her quilt to her mother in the states to forward to her. She is "Lady #45".

And here is one of the pictures she sent me originally:
Next, we have Lady #52. Her name is Chris and she was commissioned by her dear friend, Susan. She told me that Chris had some surgery and I should make her hair a bit longer:
And here is the original picture of Chris that Susan sent me:
Lastly for the ladies, we have #53, Bea. Bea is not a quilter like most of my ladies, but rather a rubber stamper and card maker. She wondered if I could create something for her to put in her craft room and told me that her motto was "more is more" so no problem if I wanted to load up the embellishments:
And here is the original picture that Bea sent me of herself. She told me that she had gotten different glasses and asked me to use the new ones instead of the ones she had on the picture.
Whew, lots of ladies this time! AND......I'll be working on #54 this weekend.
Now for the envelopes. First, let me show you the weekly fun one for my great niece, Audrey. She is the little girl I wrote about on my last post with the "early readers". I thought a looney bird would be fun:
Remember to add postage, if you plan on doing this yourself. Most early reader books in a 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 envelope take 3 forever stamps without anything additional in the envelope. (Incidentally, I did get my box of 500 and I love them! You might be seeing lots of fun big envelopes int he future, I'm afraid!) lol
Next, I'm going to post the envelopes that I sent to Annie that she has already received this past week. We are having such fun!
E-gads, that was one long blog post today. I suppose I should blog more often, huh? Sorry about that! I'll try to be better............really! It was a crazy week! Now to work on Lady #54! Hope you have a great week planned too. It's raining like crazy here today so it's a perfect day to work on fun things! Until next time..............
