A gift for Barbara



It was Barbaras (Mainely stitching) birthday last week and as always I'm always late for these occasions. Tonight Barb let me know her gift had arrived

Barb and I met through Cyberstitchers many moons ago and became friends if it wasn't for Barbara I wouldn't be blogging as she introduced me and encouraged me into the world of blogging nearly 2 years ago now.

I know how much Barb loves Blackbird Designs so I stitched her the little fob from the latest book. I changed the colours and used my Heavenly colours I had in my stash and some ric rac I had too, was used for the edging.

Su,
What a lovely thoughtful gift you sent Barb. It was definitely worth waiting for. This book is full of so many inspiring designs, it's one of my all time favourites. You've really showed this design to it's best advantage.
Hugs, Angela

I have such a big, goofy smile on my face, Su! I didn't know that I played a role in your decision to blog. :) That's so sweet.

We all love my little birdie. He's in the middle of the wall where I can see him from wherever I'm standing. My own little spring chickie of happiness. :D
