Mail from France

This week the mailman brought a birthday package all the way from France!!!!


Lili http://anothercrossstitchaddict.blogspot.com/ has really spoiled me with her lovely birthday gifts. She made me a Spring & Summer pincushion which is absolutely adorable with colors so lovely and cheerful (the picture doesn't do it proper justice - the colors are much brighter). In order to show both sides of the pincushion I made photo-copies of each side first and then scanned the entire gift. It's been put with my favorite stitching projects so I can enjoy it daily.

Oh Lili, how sweet of you to remember my raving about "La Boutique" the moment it was introduced by CCN. I can hardly wait to start stitching it.

Lili also sent some wonderful Zweigart fabrics - a midnight blue cashel linen and dark moss green aida. The ideas for designs on these are already forming in my head.

I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!!! {{{Lili}}} thank you so very, very much for making this birthday so extra special with your lovely gifts and your wonderful friendship.
