In my red box, amongst other things red, were these charming lavender pillows and this stunning stitchers companion case, all beautifully sewn by Valie
. Click on the picture and you will see how exquisite these are. Inside the companion is a skein of red silk, some pretty pins, a length of red lace and red scissors with a fob of red beads and a tiny tortoise charm. My friend spoils me - thank you Valie for your generosity!
For those of you who coveted my Eiffel Tower scissors in yesterday's post, here is another picture showing the size of these gorgeous scissors. Here is another pair of Eiffel Tower scissors with a beaded fob in my favourite colour and which has a teeny Eiffel Tower at it's end! Have I made you envious?
I made a start on the model for Sew Winter yesterday but I was not happy with the thread I had chosen so out came those tiny stitches. I was hoping to make a restart today with another thread but in this morning's mail came the latest Dan Brown book - The Lost Symbol - so I guess I will curl up on the sofa and read!
Did anyone notice the minor changes to my blog? I was fed up with my header picture and wanted a more neutral look so off came the picture and the stitching teddy is now in black and white and will probably be changed completely when I find something I like better. And also a slight name change 'iStitchaholic' has become 'iStitch' - the link is still the same - only the name has changed!
