Happy Mail Day...

I arrived home from a friend's house yesterday to a very flat package from Alabama.

A while back Mz. Monica of Girlgonethreadcrazy fame inquired about buying a face mold from me. I am a big fan of this woman's work. Her dolls are awesome and her mixed media art quilts speak to me. I suggested a trade. I have been trying to do trades for art for a little while now. It's a great way to add to my tiny but growing collection of original art.

I sent her roving, the mold she requested, a bunch of fabric collage sheets and a hand made pin cushion. And this, THIS is what I got! (click on the picture to see a bigger view)

I am over the moon for this piece. I have been hanging it in different places around the studio to find it's perfect home.
Monica, thank you thank you, thank you!
