Wonderful surprise



I got up this morning feeling distinctly green and not well at all - so much so Mark said not to go to work, so I went back to bed after a few visits to the loo! To be only woken up by the postman, not 30mins ago, and oh how I feel so much cheerier now, I opened the envelope that he handed me and saw it was my Seasonal exchange, from my secret partner who is now longer a secret, I have admired my partners blog for a very long time now as she stitches and creates some very beautiful pieces and this one is no exception, and LUCKY ME, I get to receive 3 others from her throughout the year- yippeeee!



I will leave you in suspense no longer as to who she is, its Claudia



Thankyou so much Claudia for this beautiful set of summer stitching I will cherish it very much and thankyou to for all the lovely stash goodies that you sent with it I much appreciate them.

I was when I got in from work tonight going to continue showing my holiday stitching, but it can wait as this really deserves a posting of its very own!
