I asked two webshops if they were willing to donate fabrics and Kathy Mack at Pink Chalk Fabrics was so very kind to donate fabric for at least two tops and the backing for two, one for a girl (red) and one for a boy (yes, blue). Please go visit her webshop! She has wonderful fabrics (O:
This week a parcel arrived from Satu to my home. Look at the lovely heart she made with a lovely Christmas wish. If you look closely, you can see that she used gold thread to her silk thread for the words. And she made the birds identical. Lovely work, Satu! Thank you very much, my dear friend! This means a lot to me!
BTW the chocolate was very good too, Satu (((O: We all loved it. And it was my first post from Finland!
And another parcel arrived my way from Melanie. A bag, lovely kitchen towel and playing cards from The Lake District, which is about an hour away from where she lives. I so much enjoy looking at these images. It gives me the feeling as though I am there!
The cards are very special too! It gives you such a good impression of the district. I have similar cards to discover California. I think I might start to collect them. A nice way to discover cities, states and countries.
Melanie added another present, which is also for my mother. So I haven't opened that one yet. I was going to go to my parents today, but due to the snow and the bad road conditions, we decided to stay home.
Thank you so much, sweet Melanie, for the lovely presents and my mother was very happy and suprised to hear that you thought of her!
These are some envelopes with cards inside that I made for the children that I help. I really enjoyed doing this (O:
I didn't make this stitchery quilt this year, but I wanted to show it again. It is so nice to be able to look at it again during these wonderful days, so I wanted to share it with you.
I have been working on my sampler blocks, but I am too lazy to go upstairs to make a picture. It is too cold there now. So I'll share those with you next time.
