Fa La La Start & A Gift

I started Fa La La by LNH last week on holidays. I have changed the colour in the first girls dress from green to purple (just wanted to give it some more colours). It's stitched on Cafe 28ct Linen.  Here it is so far (this is a sad pic, sorry I was tired when I took it):

I got a lovely surprise in the mail the other day. Becka who won one of my giveaways last months sent me the cutest cross stitched card and a few skeins of DMC. THank you so much Becka!!! Here is a pic of what she sent:

I did not take dragons out yesterday as it was BF's birthday and we have so much going on with a dear friend of mine permanently moving to Europe at the end of the week. So I may have to wait until after retreat on the weekend to update you on Dragons. But if I get a chance I will see about updating Thursday before I go.
I can't wait!! I am taking a bracelet class at the retreat, hopefully it turns out good. I also need to kit up my autumn/fall ornament for the ILCS Yahoo exchange that I enrolled in. So lots to come for sure!

Thanks for visiting and all your kind words on Cherly's Bouquet and my holiday pics.
I am terribly behind on commenting and checking out blogs. My apologies, I will try to get around in the next few days.

Mel, the picture is not so bad! I can see the stitching and I like it (smile). And what a nice card, I'm sure it made you smile.

That's not a bad pic, Fa La la looks nice, the color-change really works well.
