Decorative Thimble Exchange and RHN Clarification

I wanted to share the delightful package from my Decorative Thimble Exchange partner, Glenda. Glenda lives in New Zealand - and she spoiled me rotten!! I felt like a little girl on Christmas morning! Tea, chocolates, an ornament of New Zealand, beautiful sewing-themed fabric (in BLUE - my favorite color), lovely handmade ornaments and the thimble from North Elmham, St. Mary's Church.
Look at this darling teeny-tiny box that contained my thimble. It sports a cross stitch of a wee Palace guard - the same pattern that was on Prince George's vest.
 Glenda made these ornaments using dry air clay - aren't the amazing???
 The package was wrapped in the fabric and tied with this blue ribbon - complete with a horse (yes, she knew I love horses)...
 Here's what I sent Glenda - the Marie Antoinette sewing tin with a fleur de lis pin cushion and a thimble that has the Iowa state bird (gold finch) and state flower (wild rose).
 Some cross stitch kits I love -
I had a blast hosting this exchange - I hope to do another one next year.

Clarification:
Now - I need to clarify something from my previous post on gold work. I took the class/seminar from RHN here in the USA - not at RHN in the UK. I provided the link to RHN so you could see the wonderful work they do and the classes, seminars, etc., they provide. My apologies for the confusion.
It still was a dream come true…..
