A New Design and A Gift

Hello my dear friends,
after more than four years it was time to redesign my Blog.Thanks to Karen from Valentine Design
my ideas could be transferred into such a beautiful design. It was easy and such a pleasure to work
with Karen on the project and I'm real happy with the results. Thank you so much Karen.

Due to these activities I'm somwhat late to share the gifts from  Suzy.

Who doesn't dream of Paris? I do and you can imagine my delight when I opened up my presents from dear Suzy  @ Suziqusthreadwoks  and found this most beautiful work of art. 

Look at all the details and layers of laces. Suzy does such gorgeous work and I'm sure most of you know her already and if not do stop by and visit her -  you won't be dissapointed.

The photos speak for themselves.

Suzy also spoiled me with this stunning fabric bag which has two pockets and found a special place in my studio to hold precious treasures. Thank you again dear Suzy and you know already how much I love your gifts.
 
 
 
At the moment I'm so busy but nevertheless found the time to start practicing  creating fabric flowers.
Here is my very first  one which might need a bit of improvement.
Have a lovely weekend and thank you so much for stopping by. Hope to catch up with you tonight.
 
Hugs and love,
.

Marie,
Immediately your newly re-designed blog hit me with its beauty and it captures all that is "so very Marie".
Exquisite gift from the heart from the lovely Suzy with that abundance of textiles and the wonderment of story telling.

Beautiful new look, Marie, the header is gorgeous, as is the whole scheme of course. Oh my, just look at those beautiful gifts from Suzy. Her work is amazing, I could look at her creations for hours, taking in all the wonderful details.
Hmmmm, fabric flowers. I am not very good at them. You on the other hand, seem to be VERY good indeed, lol, your first one is so pretty and now I want to see many more and also how you are using them of course ;-).
