Gifts and a snowfall!

Pictures by Angela

Last week I received an unexpected package in the mail and inside I found these wonderful gifts from dear sweet Angela. A perfectly stitched and finished flat fold, one of her exquisite pin books and a monogrammed card, all in my favourite colour blue. Thank you Angela, I love them all.

If you are interested in one or more of Angela's pin books, email me and I will put you in touch with her. They are printed onto quality card stock which is then gently distressed for an aged look. Each one has a matching felt interior and three pearl headed pins with a decorative bow. They are absolutely lovely and make the perfect gift for your stitching friends - if you can bear to give them away!

Last Saturday morning seemed the perfect day with bright sunshine and blue skies, albeit extremely cold, so I thought we had missed the forecasted snow but it wasn't to be as it started snowing around mid-night. The garden pots look a little like snow-cones and can you see we also had a visit from Mr Fox? Click on the collage and you will see his tiny footprints.


I finished stitching the gift I've been working on so today it will be the final finish and then back to the pre-stitching for my class in London in April.

Thank you for visiting
Take care

    Don't you just love getting packages when you are least expecting any? It just brightens up the day for sure ;)

    That's a lot of snow! Sounds like a great chance to cuddle up by a fire and do some reading/cross stitching!

    Have a great week!

    What a beautiful gift from Angela. Simply gorgeous... and I love the pin book! Feel free to send me some snow here in MI. I'm sooo jealous. :)

    You received such beautiful gifts from Angela! I have been lucky enough to receive some special gifts from her too, and everything she makes is always so pretty and has that very special touch! I love the snowy pictures - wish we would have snow this winter, but I don't think it's in our forecast this year.

    It seems odd to see snow there when we hardly have any here. I'm not complaining, though! :)

    Nice gifts you received.

    I should have my Stitch A Mystery box done by the end of the week.

    Gorgeous gifts from Angela.
    Her little pin books are so lovely.
    Was it your birthday Carol? If so, happy belated birthday.
    I don't envy you the snow. It looks pretty but that's about all I can say for it.
