Joke, for some reason I cannot remember, thought she 'owed' me a return exchange and one arrived today. Oh my goodness gracious - I am just overwhelmed. That girl does some exquisite needlework. Such patience and precision,
A Chatelaine Design, with silk and beads. The Alphabet in Fraktur. [Luckily she sent along an explanation, too.] Is it not just fabulous?
And because she knew that I am completely crazy for Christmas decorating, you can see the Christmas decorations included in her stitching and it's backed with a georgous fabric. Oh lucky, lucky me. Joke, my dear friend, thank you so very much. It's just beautiful.
