Here's another gift, one which wouldn't normally be considered quilt related. The givers might have thought I'd be inspired by the design, but I'm guessing they'd be surprised that my first impulse upon unwrapping it would be to try it as a rubbing plate. Gotta figure out if I can do that without leaving paint on it, because ultimately I do want to use it for its intended purpose - a decorative piece that can be hung outside. It's one heavy sucker - antiqued wrought iron, or something similar. It is beautiful in its form and texture. Thanks!
