Christmas Ornie, HoE

From last Saturday on I have a bad sinus infection, so Mondaymorning I went to the medical centre to get some antibiotics. This morning I was home, feeling not too well, as the postman brought in two packages! First there was a package from Edgar. When I saw the sender's name I was thrilled. I have been following Edgar's blog, and adore the stitching and finishing he does!
The ornie was wrapped up so nice, so I teased myself, taking a picture before unwrapping.

Then, finally, I allowed myself to unwrap, and it turned out to be
a gorgeous Chrismas Ornament. Edgar stitched an Old Santa, from the Prairie Schooler and finished it perfectly!

Also there were some lovely goodies, like DMC, backing fabric, a magnet with a reproduction of a Californian Landscape, from the collection of Wendy Willrich at de Young - Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco. I remember I envied Edgar to live in a place with such a great museum!
And a box of fine mint chocolate, of which Im going to taste one .... now! Yummie, tastes great, I bet they will all been gone at the end of the week LOL.

The second package was the DMC I ordered from J&J, having their annual sale. Now I have all the supplies needed for making a start on a new HAED, Vibrant Vista. It is pulling my attention ever since I bought it, but now I decided to really make a start, as somebody is working on this too. That way it becomes a BAP SAL, isn't it?
