I met Taija from Finland through this exchange and she has enriched my life in many ways. This week a birthday gift arrived but I couldn't wait until next week so have opened it already.Many many thanks Taija. I love all the gifts.
I especially love the licorice - here's a close up of that. The wedgewood plate was a gift on my 21st ( a special celebration in New Zealand) and the licorice a gift for my 55th birthday!!!
I was in a private birthday exchange with Ina from the Crazy Exchange group. Ina had already had her birthday in August so I had sent her a birthday gift. Ina sent me a beautiful birthday gift. Her stitching is so beautiful and the finishing is just perfect. Here is a picture of the stitched ball.
And another picture of the whole exchange.
Thank you ever so much for this beautiful gift Ina. I really love it.
Look what I got from Ina, isn't it beautiful! Ina thank you so much I love it. You realy spoiled me.
