A gift for Barb

Barb (no blog) has received the little gift i stitched for her as a thank you for the lovely parcel she sent to me. The design is a very old Lizzie Kate freebie which i chose to make into a bobbin holder. We'd had a conversation at Stitch and Stash about how we all finished our challenge pieces and if we hand sew or machine stitch them. I always hand sew mine and thought what better way to explain than to show her. Vicki Clayton thread in garnet was my choice on sky blue britney stitched 1x1. I also included the 2 skeins of silk for her to try. I'm looking forward to seeing what she stitches with them and how she likes them... i do hope i have not started her off on a new collection of threads :-)
