Exchange & surprise!

Two envelopes were delivered to me today. Rachael has stitched and made me this wonderful cushion and enclosed a little note that says 'Why? ... just because' THANK YOU so much Rachael, your stitching is exquisite, its was such a lovely surprise and i will treasure it. The second parcel had come from the USA, Robin was my exchange partner in the needleroll exchange at TS. Isn't this a stunning creation, i don't think i've seen this chart before so will have to find out who the designer is. The wording says 'The embroiderer stitches with a golden needle' and there is actually a golden needle attached to it, how cool is that! Thank you Robin.

Wednesday has come round again quickly so i'll be off to the stitchy club tonight. I'll be taking 'summer' with me again i think as it's not seen the light of day since last week LOL

Happy stitching
