I received from quaggy and if I squealed...I would have squealed. She claimed me for a wisty surprise and she made
ahem, I mean Aria the most wonderful artwork EVER. This is going to be a picture heavy post...just a warning.
Once upon a time wisted this most amazing appliqued and embroidered pirate ship. I never ever dreamed in a million years that someone would ever make it for me...not to mention the original artist! Squee!!
Here it is...I am so majorly in LOVE with it!!!
And look at those fish beads and the bubbles!!! Aria was so enthralled by the anchor. She kept telling me, "Look, Mommy, its an anchor...its an anchor!"
The embellishments are amazing! Check out the mouse! From the song, "The Fairy Ship" about the ship with a duck as captain and four and twenty white mice as sailors!! This makes this even more amazing. Its such a sweet sentimental touch for me!!
More fish beads with bead bubbles!!!
Aria checking out her new artwork. Quaggy also sent the bag of almonds, the raisins, and the duck plush, all from the song..."raisins in the cabin and almonds in the hold.....the captain was a duck, a duck" Aria has been telling me she is a duck all week so she was super excited not only to get the cool artwork but also the duck. She carried it in her pocket when we went downtown today. Heh.
Thanks so much, Quaggy! This is such a special gift. It is absolutely treasured!
