Porcupines in the Post... :-)


Stitched Porcupines, that is! I received my very first Mail Art from Roberta today and I am over the moon with joy and totally in awe... It is absolutely gorgeous!!! Thank you ever so much Roberta... It is so beautiful and special to me and I will treasure my Mail Art from you always! You are such a talented stitcher and finisher!!!

Roberta also tucked a few wee gifties into my Mail Art... French Country Cat by JBW Designs... {I've been wanting this design since it came out!} A gorgeous skein of Needle Necessities Overdyed Razzel Dazzel Red Thread {which is perfect for the French Country Cat!}... John James Petites 28... DMC Thread Lables and a DMC Thread Check List... and a gorgeous Post Card... :-) I love it all, Roberta! Thanks so much, Hun!


So without further a'do, my dear friends... feast your eyes upon this glorious work of Art... {of course it's much lovelier IRL} Roberta stitched Moonlight Stroll by The Yankee Stitcher... I love this design ...

My beautiful Mail Art from Roberta...


The Back of my Mail Art... Stitched by Roberta...
Moonlight Stroll by The Yankee Stitcher...


Wee Porcupines on their way home
after their Moonlight Stroll...


Peaceful night-time stroll under the stars...

And... Viola! The beautiful gifties inside ...
I really did not want to snip the stitches
on the back to open it up because it
was so lovely with the flap stitched
down on the back...
However curious as I am...
I had to see what was inside...
And the fabric Roberta used to line
the envelope is just perfect!


I'll post my Lizzie*Kate graduation finish for Jamie, a few of Brandy's Cruise piccys, garden piccys... et cetera... next time.. as I didn't want to take away from Roberta's special Mail Art with a lot of other photos... :-)

I am feeling better emotionally... physically, it's one day at the time... but I'm okay! My deepest heartfelt thanks to you all for your sweet thoughts, wishes and words of encouragement... they are ever an inspiration and continue to bring cheer and sunshine to my days... You are all so special to me and I treasure your friendship... I don't know what I would do if I didn't have you all to inspire me and brighten my days. Stitching friends are truly treasures beyond measure!

Oh, and I suppose you noticed I changed the name of my blog to *Stitching Faery's Ramblings from under the Willow Tree...* ;-) I have been thinking about it for some time... when I started my blog back in January I couldn't think of a name I really liked... so I just used A Stitching Faery's Haven until I could come up with something I really loved... Willow Trees have always been my favourite and I am always stitching and forever *away with the faerys*... So, it seems to fit me perfectly... It's a wee bit long, but it's so me! ;-)

And since tomorrow is the 4th of July... I thought I'd add this wee piece I stitched last July... I haven't had time to stitch any Patriotic pieces this year... Yet! :-) I still need to frame it...

Land That I Love by Lizzie*Kate
Stitched on Vintage County Mocha Cashel
With WDW, GAST and Whisper Threads...
Finished 23 July 2006 ...



To every one in the USA... Wishing you all a Happy and Safe 4th of July! :-)

Thank you all for visiting... your love and encouragement continues to brighten my days akin to sunshine and rainbows after the rain...



Blessings and Love in Stitches...


I am thankful for precious moments... stitching exchanges... stitchy gifts... stitching friends... and love everlasting...

Your mail art is lovely Lizzy. Such a sweet design.

I like your new blog name. Mine was a quick one as, like you, I couldn't think of anything at the time!

Nancy said...

Happy 4th Lizzy, and I was glad to read that you are starting to feel better!

Your mail art from Roberta is beautiful! What a precious design she stitched and so many goodies inside. Enjoy everything.

Take care,

You are so lucky to get a beautiful MA and the goodies. I love the design. I was not thinking and scurried for a blog name. I love the new name. I didnt know you could change it.

Michelle said...

Those porcupines are so sweet! What a great exchange. Glad you are doing better. Your piece from last year is cute too!!

stitcherw said...

The mail art is beautiful, the little porcupines are so cute. It amazes me that these can go through the mail with no damage, I'd be so worried each time if I did it that they would get lost.

Your finished piece Land That I Love turned out lovely. Glad that you are now doing better emotionally, hopefully physically will follow soon as well.

I love the mailart Roberta stitched for you - such a sweet design.

Stitching is good therapy :)

What a beautiful mailart! Mailart really is the best post you can receive :) It's always so wonderful to find a stitched envelope in the mail box.

Julie said...

Roberta did a fantastic job with your piece of MA. I love the little porcupines, so cute.
Your LK piece is great. I think I have stitched this piece to and that it too is in the yet to be framed pile.

Carto said...

Hey Lizzie, my lovely - a very belated happy 4th of July to you! Woweee, Roberta is a talented lass I can tell you - I would have loved to receive something like that - it's gorgeous - and all that lovely stitching booty inside. I notice you've got the 'French Country Cat' pattern - I have that too!

I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better - Bright Blessings to you my friend! xx

AnneS said...

Wow, that's one stunning piece of mailart! Great gifties too :D

The Silver Thistle said...

Fantastic Mail Art!! Lucky girl :D

I keep thinking I'd like to do something like this but (so far) haven't found any instructions. I don't even know if there ARE instructions, lol. Did it come in a plastic packet? Or are the stamps just on the fabric? Enquiring minds need to know, hahahh

So glad to hear you're getting back to your old self. I can totally relate to the warm, fuzzy feelings of knowing your stitching friends are with you for the journey. Makes it all seem so much cosier in blogland I think.

Thinking of you girly :D

Jamie said...

I'm so glad to hear from you! Love the new blog name. I love the goodies.

Wendy said...

Great new name, Lizzy! I'm so happy to read that you are feeling a little better. There truly are no friends like stitching friends, and those in the blogworld really do make our hearts sing with the sweet comments they leave behind for us to read.

Your mail art piece is exquisite!

elenamac said...

Kajsa said...

Love the mail art you got. So happy to hear that you are better!

Hazel said...

That is a lovely piece of mailart. I just wouldn't trust our postal service. Someone would probably steal it. xx

Karen said...

Wow, that's really beautiful! Glad you're feeling a bit better!

Margaret said...

High time I dropped by the Willow Tree for a little visit. The addition to your blog name is great - I feel right at home.
Your mail art is adorable Lizzy and certainly must have brightened your day. So glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better.
I have a question about your RR. Will you please email me at megr_xstitcherathotmaildotcom

stitcherw said...

You're awfully quiet again my friend. Hope all is well and you'll have some lovely stitching to show us. I often think if I'd stay off the computer a bit more I'd get more stitching done.
Sue

Tracey said...

Glad to see you back and that things are going better for you! I love your recent work and the mail are you received is lovely! I've never gotten any stitched envelopes before! How cool! Hope to see you here more often! I like your new blog name. Hugs!
