Sometimes, someone does something so lovely for you that it just totally overwhelms you. This is one of those times. A couple of weeks ago, I received a lovely email from Annette of http://californiastitcher.blogspot.co.uk/. She had seen my blog post about my top 5 designs in this year's JCS ornie issue and how I loved the Gingerbread Cupcake design but no desire to spend a fortune kitting up the design. Annette asked me if I would still like to stitch it as she had kitted it up for me...I mean...wow...how lovely is that? Annette then told me she had especially dyed some fabric for me too. I was (still am) completely overwhelmed by her kindness and generosity.
Anyway, fast forward to yesterday and the arrival of the package. When I opened it up look what 'fell' out. All of this!!!! Annette had even cut batting and card for me to make it up and included some lovely extras. That hot chocolate you can see is yummy! I'm going to see if we have it over here when I go shopping.
As you can see there are 2 packages at the back. The green one I have had to be really good and give to Colin as it's for Christmas. The one on the left, Annette had written in the card that I could open it now. Well look what was in it!
How gorgeous is that little needle book? It is so adorable and all the fabrics are lovely.
Thank you so much Annette. I am so blessed that you thought of me and the package you put together for me is so lovely.
Oh...and by the way...I have started stitching it :)
