Day 9 of the 12 days of Christmas swap

Today is day 9 of the swap and not a day I was looking forward to opening as the lady who made the swap for today died just after she sent them in. I didn't know Gina but had heard a lot about her on the group and had seen pieces of her work on the site. So it felt strange opening this package, but what a package this was.

The box had been hand made to hold the piece so it was not damaged in the post and embossed with the word nine in silver embossing powder.

Inside was the most amazing dancing lady. All her joints move so you can pose her and it is set off by the lovely jewelled muslin on the side. The piece along the bottom is metal that has been put through an embossing machine and goes around to the back. I feel so honoured to have such a wonderful piece from such a talented artist. She will be missed by all that knew her or enjoyed her art.

Thanks for reading,

Like you, I'm glad Gina was in this swap. I didn't even think to pose the dancing lady.
