Stitchmap Mentor challenge

As you all might know I am a member of StitchMap, and part of the mentor program.  We too have some challenges that we get to participate in, and one of them was the Mug Rug swap, here is the one I sent to Ruby in the US,


and below, is the one I received from Michelle in the US, along with some yummy assortment of tea's.


The second challenge was to make something from a gift that Shari had sent us.  It was an embroidered peacock feather.  To give you a peek and not to give to much away to it's recipient, here are some teasing eye candy shots.

and one more closeup,

I truly love the colours of this piece and have reservations of sending it on, but it is for a very special lady and I know she will love it.  I am using some of the techniques I love best, beading, surface embroidery and gold work.  There may even be a bit of stump work in there too.... watch this space.....
