Today, the mailman delivered the most wonderful package to me from Sharon M who lives in Oklahoma. Inside was the above (top picture), firstly a beautifully stitched and finished box and can you believe that it's Sharon's first attempt at a box?!! The wording on the top of the box is 'scissors' in different languages. I can tell that Sharon has been a visitor to my blog by the black and white theme! Not only did Sharon stitch the lovely box top, she also added a matching fob with co-ordinating scissors. Also enclosed with the package was a bag of colourful ribbons, two skeins of DMC variagated threads, some needles, a thimble in it's own tiny velvet bag, two reels of black and white ribbons, a needle threader with a tiny tassel and a red bead, a piece of 32ct linen and a piece of the black and white gingham too! How spoiled am I? Thank you Sharon - you have made this exchange so memorable for me.
Today I was going to have a marathon finishing session as all my exchange pieces and gifts for friends are stitched but, after all the excitement in receiving this beautiful gift, I didn't get round to it so I am planning on doing this tomorrow. Tonight I am working on Ms Hannah.
Still no flowers on the eggling. I think it's due to lack of sunshine as it's dull and gloomy here but the buds are fairly big so maybe it will bloom really soon.
Thanks for visiting
