22, 23 and Tisa

RAK # 22 was delivered safe and sound to Lynn of Happiness is Cross Stitching. Lynn is the lady who encouraged me to start my own blog - and I can't be more grateful for her suggestion and encouragement. She and I share a love of French themed things. With that in mind....

  11. Yet more beautiful gifts you've created Kim. I do have to say that Tisa is beautiful - I'm assuming she must be a miniature? If so, she has an amazing amount of detail for something that small. Love her!

  29. Hi Kim,

    Thankyou so much for the beautiful gift you sent to me, apologies for the late response, I have been to England and only just returned.
    I loved everything you sent to me, the little painted box is so beatiful and the fabric is the perfect choice!
    I will treasure the gift always.

    Hugs
