What a Lovely Surprise!

I just received my private exchange from Lisa S, and WOW I am speechless!!!!
I have admired this design and finish on other stitchers blogs and always thought how lovely it would be to own.  Well now I have my very own special one from a very dear friend.  Lisa said that she was able to find almost the exact fabric that was used in the original aswell.

The whole parcel

I absolutely LOVE my gifts and will treasure my lovely stitchers pouch.  Thank you soo much Lisa.

I also finished up another WIP last night.  This one I have wanted to stitch for a long time and my plan is to frame it and hang it in my laundry room.

It was a really enjoyable stitch.
Until next time, happy stitching
