I just received a lovely package from Katrina today. In it were these two beautiful Christmas ornaments. Aren't they just lovely? I fear the heart one did not photograph terribly well. They are just too sweet! And, Katrina knows how much we both love Elizabeth's Designs, which makes the stitched one all that much more special!
Katrina also sent me this adorable little ort bag! I adore the fabric, and I am over the moon over these gifts. I remember seeing some of these cute ort bags in her blog a few months bag, and you cam imagine my glee when I saw that she sent one to me. And her fabric choice for me is beyond perfect! She also sent me a fat quarter of Geyser Kiwi Illusions lugana as her half of our recent fabric exchange. Thanks so much Katrina, your friendship is so dear to me!
My Christmas surprises did not end there. I also got an amazing package from Jenn today too! Oh my gosh! She sent me this most wonderful HAED chart... wish I could recall its name as I type this. It will be an amazing tapestry that will take a lifetime to stitch, yet you know I will give it my best shot! She also sent me a fat quarter of Platinum Pizzaz lugana by Silkweaver and truly enhanced my DMC stash while she was it! Jenn, your friendship means the world to me too - you are also so, so very sweet!
I also received two more charts from the lovely ebay seller in France... don't these just look amazing?? They remind me of HAED and White Willow Stitching designs and appear to be very, very well charted :-)
OK... sometimes I feel like Convent's Herbal Garden gets a little bit neglected (probably because it is not a SAL). But I focused on it this evening, stitched tons and tons of little yellow Jessicas, and now the upper left garden is finished! Relief!
