Fortunate

I really consider myself so very fortunate to have such wonderful stitching friends and I really don't know what I have done to deserve them, my friends give me pleasure with their blogs, emails,albums,phone calls and comments.

So yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the door and yes I mean knock I thought he was going to come through the glass LOL!! and it was the parcel force man with a HUGE envelope for me from Japan.

Now Yuko and I decided to do a pinkeep exchange together, so I wasn't expecting the large envelope that arrived at all,I was expecting a much smaller one and it came in record time, Yuko had posted it on Sunday and it got to me Wednesday now there's speedy delivery, poor lass is still waiting for mine to arrive and I posted that on Saturday!



As I unwrapped it all I was fairly gobsmacked to see what was in it, Yuko had made me one of her beautiful bags and had personalised it for me with my initial. Inside the bag there is a pocket and that has Yuko's initial beside it. Its so lovely in real life my pictures don't do it justice I'm sure. Its now hanging in my bedroom as its too nice to use.



The next part of the parcel was no exception either it was the reason for our exchange. The pinkeep, again its so beautifully stitched and finished. Yuko has stitched EEF Rose Cottage for me as she knows how much I adore EEF designs its just perfect, I love the personalisation on the back and the wee pocket, you would never know that she has only been stitching for a year would you. Yuko is so incredibly talented.

I'll leave you with a picture of the extras that I received too and the of the bag and pinkeep and I think the quote below says it all about ALL the lovely exchanges that I have received from some very wonderful ladies throughout the year.



A thing of beauty is a joy forever; Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness." — John Keats. 1795-1821 Endymion. Book i

Goodness Su,
What a beautiful package of stitched goodies and thoughtfully compiled gifts. I get the feeling Yuko had as much pleasure putting this package together for you as you had receiving it. Isn't the giving and receiving of lovingly created gifts just the most enjoyable thing ever. The pinkeep and stitched bag are just exquisite.
Hugs, Angela
