New Projects & a gift from Japan

I received some lovely new projects in the mail. All nice and easy and quick - all I can manage at the moment!!! 2 cute Rosalie Quinlan stitcheries - already preprinted (love that) and a cute little owl from Ric raC. Which one do I start?
I also got a wonderful email from James yesterday. He's still in England, but he wanted to show me the present he got me when he was in Japan. He couldn't wait to bring it home (in 4 weeks!!!). There was 13 photos in the email - from a photo of the present, beautifully wrapped to opening it and then a whole set of photos modeling it. It was so funny and beautiful I laughed and cried at the same time. It is the most beautiful kimono and I can't wait to see it and see James in the flesh. Not long to go now.
What new projects are you starting? I'm starting small, hoping I can manage that as things are so hectic here (what's new??)
Have a great day and a great weekend!
