ABC Exchange FROM Svenja



The postman called yesterday with a parcel for me, when I opened it there was a gorgeous ABC exchange from Svenja

Svenja has made me this lovely wind chime in the most perfect colours for me. I really love it and I had a big smile on my face all day, it now hanging up in my sewing room/spare bedroom and looks lovely.




Anne S asked me what CA Wells class Helen and I are doing in November, on the Saturday we are doing The Sailors Valentine and then on the Sunday we are doing the Peacock Sewing Case. I am so looking forward to doing these we are going to have a fun weekend together we don't often get to spend the weekend as just the two of us so this will be nice we've promised ourselves a visit to Liberty's on the Friday too whch I'm sure will involve spending lots of money LOL!!

A wind chime!!! Another new finish I need to try myself. It's beautiful, Su, I can imagine you were smiling all day. I'm kinda jealous about the CA Wells class. It sounds like you and Helen are going to have a fabulous time!

What an amazing gift from Svenja. Lucky you!!
Do you mean I have to wait until November to see your Peacock Sewing Case? It is so adorable but I would never attempt it. You & Helen, on the other hand, do such beautiful intricate work that your's will be fabulous.

Von said...

This is the first wind chime finish I've ever seen - it's fabulous!!

I'm so excited that you and Helen have a CA Wells class to look forward to. Spend a few pounds for me at Liberty! :)

The soft colors are just right for this piece. And what a sweet finish! This is just marvelous!

Those are two wonderful classes - I saw the Sailors Valentine in Perth, and of course stitched the Peacock Needlecase, and absolutely adore it! You're going to have a blast! :D

The windchime from Svenja is absolutely adorable - what an awesome way of finishing! And your daisy pinkeep is very special as always. Your stitching is always a treat to behold :D
