Hello Blogging friends! Oh my, I have been longing to do a post, but we have had such trouble with our internet connection, but it all seems to be sorted out for now.
I have been doing a lot of stitching and will show progress pics over the next few weeks, but firstly I want to show you the wonderful prize I received. I won Lee Albrecht's Christmas draw at the end of last year and a few months ago the package arrived. It was so much fun to receive a brown paper package!
Here is a look at the goodies inside. A lovely magazine containing some Reticella work, postcards, Perle cotton, a Brazilian pin and some wonderfull organic soap!
Here is a close up of the small kits, they are so sweet and I absolutely love the Matrioska thread keep!
The main prize was this wonderful Hardanger Christmas Stocking kit - it is so beautiful! Lee also included a calender, containing beautiful pictures of her work and kits.
The students from Lee's embroidery school also wanted to get involved in sending some gifts and I was lucky enough to receive this lovely package from Larissa. She included a card, stunning dog print fabrics, sweet treats and some other goodies.
Look at this cute fabric - I love it!
This piece of fabric is also great and I love those buttons - she must know how much I love dogs!
Thank you so much to Lee and Larissa! I appreciate these beautiful, thoughtful gifts so very much!
I have a lot of catching up to do on blogs and will also post some of my stitching updates soon.
