I received a late birthday present yesterday.  MareMare posted for an angel for me in the September birthday swap and the fabulously talented Cackle raised her hand to do it.  You probably have seen her incredible polymer clay work before.  As it turns out, clay isn't her only medium.  She did an illustration for me... of my actual farmhouse during Autumn, my favorite time of the year.  It includes the saying 'Plenty and Grace be to this Place'.  Notice the chickens and sheep drawn in the corners and the willow on the sides.  She even included the satellite dish on our garden shed in the foreground.  This is beyond gorgeous and made me so happy I was weepy.  I'll treasure it always!



Since Halloween is my favorite holiday and we raise sheep she also included this absolutely adorable book 'Sheep Trick or Treat'.  They make their own costumes and go trick or treating in the barn where the other animals share their goodies! 



I can't imagine anyone being happier than I am for being flaked on in a swap.  Thank you so much, Cackle!  I bow to your artistic talent and am thankful for your kind generosity.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Thanks for saying such nice things about my work! It was fun to be an angel and a joy to make something for a friend.  Smiley
