RAK! Again!

Jessie was leaving the house and came back in with a puffy envelope.
I didn't order anything.
It's from 123 Stitch?
Holy cow, it's a RAK!

I ripped it (carefully) open in three seconds flat. WOW! Two (count 'em) charts from Sisters and Best Friends...Pear Sampler and Autumn Thanks. From my wish list! OMG stash! This comes from Barb in Australia. Barb doesn't blog but she does keep a photo album. Can you read the note sent with it? It says "For the best ever floss mom. Love Barb in OZ" Awww! That is so nice! OMG I better get stitching...I haven't finished Summer Joy yet!!!

Thank you, Barb!
I will enjoy these so very much.

Now, for those of you asking for more of Jessie's work. Recap: Jessie is a Theatre Technologies student so the majority of her creativity these days gets channeled into costumes, props and items for class. Ta da! Here is a little sample.
This first picture is a character head for a mascot costume. Jess made this just because she is awesome. Yes, it is wearable; you can see through those eyes and it doesn't feel anything like wearing a Halloween costume. It really kind of creepy to put that head on and it's like you become that character...
This dashing chapeau was created for costumes class this semester. Way cool. The kid can make cool hats!!! I'll try to post up more of her work as I can.
~~~~~~~~~~~
Deadlines. I fails thems.
A heartfelt apology to my exchange partner...your snowman won't get mailed until tomorrow. I was able to finish it though and what are you looking at me like that for? Yes, I know I organized this exchange and I'm the last one who should be late. Hey, chill out it's only one day late! I promise, it goes out in tomorrow's mail...
