I'm So Happy About My New Friends!

Look What I Got From A Dear Friend

I happened to mention that I wanted to learn needle punching with wool roving. Well, two very dear friends decided to gift me with
this awesome kit with everything I need to get started.
Thank you SO MUCH Joyce and Prudence. You may see Joyce's work
at The Bear's Blog. Joyce makes the nicest bears and the most
exquisite miniatures you've ever seen. Check out her miniature
Pumpkin House she made for her Whendi Mouse.

I take the worst pictures, but this is a kit called Buster, a Playful Pup, A Little Critter Pattern by Linda B. Schaff. The kit came with dark grey wool fiber for the body, red for the ball, black for his nose, little black eye beads, and black floss. It also included a
Felting needle and long needle to sew the eyes in place.

And this was a TOTALLY UNEXPECTED SURPRISE! One of Joyce's miniature bears. You can't see it well in the picture but she came
inside a painted tin with lovely little vintage images of a sailor boy and a bear, toy rabbits, a toy duck and a teddy bear and rabbit birthday party. She's an angel bear, complete with little gold
wings a lace dress with gold trim and gold bow in the back and
her little red bow on her head. She has the teensiest little black
bead eyes and little black bead on the tip of her snout. 
She's signed by Joyce and she's just adorable. The details of the
bear are all there even in her petite 1 1/2 inches.

Thank you, Dear Joyce and Dear Prudence for including the surprise in my package. I will always cherish your friendship.
Miss Susan (as Prudence lovingly refers to me)

Hi Susan, what a great gift, especially from a friend.

Thanks for stopping by my place. I want to pass along to you some help I found centering my blog header. This worked for me...

Hi, Try this.

Go to customise>advanced>enter CSS and paste this into the box

#header {
padding-left: 170px;
padding-top: 0px;

click enter - you will get a preview - the more you increase the padding left the further to the right the image should move.
you can also change the top padding to move the image down.
if it works when you are happy with the result click 'apply to blog'.
