Random Surprise

Hello to all you lovely ladies.   I randomly drew a name from the Database and made a surprise stitched item and sent that by mail today.   Who will be the lucky recipient I wonder?   Watch your mail box - the Postman should come to see you in 4 to 10 days.

Christmas in July

It is almost July and as my package has a loooooong way to travel it was taken to the Post Office today.

Return exchange from Vania

Vania sent me this pinkeep stitched in the colours of the Italian Flag - now isn't that a wonderful way to keep the exchange international! In her letter she told me she had dyed the fabric herself. How very clever. I am looking forward to using the hank of red thread - perhaps for some Japanese Kogin Darning???

Many many thanks Vania

Now I am working on my Christmas in July Exchange - what do you think that will be? Watch this space.
