Oh Wow. Now I know I was totally outclassed by all my partners in this swap.
I've received from Kaeleira this morning. Such amazing artwork puts me in a bit of a dilemma: The Twinchie, it's a beautiful drawing of a beautiful architectural detail, I shall have to settle for admiring both her skills and her taste, but decide not to choose which one is better!
I have a kite too, beautifully researched and drawn, with ghostly silver tail which is just perfect for me: I fly kites with tails for demonstrations and without for competitions: a foot in both camps.
The silver birches are beautiful and again an inspired choice: there is a painting of silver birches in my favourite gallery which I have been coveting for such a long time, but could never either justify spending so much money on or even display at my house because it's so big. Now I have some tiny silver birches which I can even have in our interim tiny flat.
The Perseid meteors are embroidered on black velvet which makes me stroke it as well as look at it, wonderfully tactile, mmmmm.
The turtle is lovely, swimming through his tempting sea, creating his own eddies as he goes. I like so much that he is local to Kaeleira too.
They were all sent in a lovely card too, although I failed photograph that, Oops.
Oh! all those words and no photos yet
, here they are:
