A delight


Its always such a delight to receive a wonderful stitched gift from Yuko , as her work is so amazing. When just before Christmas a package arrived from Japan, I was so excited to open it. There inside was this wonderful red sack stuffed full, I was so taken aback when I saw everything that Yuko sent to me, I feel so spoiled and just don't know what I had done to deserve everything that she sent.
I found some tea from Japan and some other goodies, Yuko's wonderful tear drop coasters, and I can tell you that they are every bit as beautiful in real life as they are the pictures you see of them. I found fabric and special finishing bits, a wonderful rose scented sheep - (Yuko how did you know that Rose scents are my favourite?)

But most of all I found this........................


Isn't it lovely, so beautifully stitched and finished with soft green velvet, it really is lovely and I was very moved by it all. Thankyou so much again my dear friend.


This is the wee ornament I stitched for Yuko I thought I would add it here as I hadn't shown it yet. Its by CHS and stitched on 40ct vintage linen using VC silk thread and backed with silk fabric and a silk ribbon for hanging.

What a lovely sack of gifts from Yuko! The stitched Peace is gorgeous, and the little buttons are such a nice touch. I have admired her coasters on her blog - aren't they wonderful? And, I have never seen a rose scented sheep, but the only word I can think of for that is enchanting. Your ornament to Yuko is also very beautiful and one of my very favorite designs!

Wow Su,
Yuko must be one of Santa's helpers and she seems to have saved a real bag of delights specially for you :>)
I love the red goody bag and the prezzies are a real treat. What a beautiful ornament she has made and trimmed with such pretty shell buttons. The coasters look absolutely stunning and all the extras make it a loving and really personalized gift.
From one very special person to another :>)
Hugs, Angela

Oh dear, silly me,
I also forgot to say how beautiful your gift to Yuko is. Having seen it and held it when I visited you, I can honestly say it's beautifully made and finished with shot silk and trimmed with lovely shimmery reddy greeen ribbon :>)
Hugs, Angela
