First, from my sweet friend, Montse (no blog).....all the way from Spain:
A beautiful fan from her mother's collection - isn't it stunning? - a tiny bottle with sand from Barceloneta Beach, a Santa clip and a lovely wooden heart button. THANK YOU, MONTSE! I love it all.
An envelope came from Canada - Mary Anne has been making these crazy quilt post cards and posting on her blog these past weeks. I've been drooling over each and every one. Look what she sent to me:
Isn't it gorgeous?? THANK YOU, MARY ANNE! I will treasure it always.
......and then a package from Singapore. Angela, my talented, gracious friend I was lucky enough to meet in person when visiting Singapore earlier this year, sent me these:
As you may or may not know, Angela owns a stitching shop in Singapore (click here to pop over and visit). She had the opportunity to visit the DMC offices in Japan. Knowing how much I love biscornus, she picked up this biscornu pattern and also sent a commemorative DMC brooch.
Angela thoughtfully gifted me this Lizzie Kate chart, which I've loved and wanted to stitch. THANK YOU, ANGELA! You are so thoughtful and kind. I'm lucky to call you my friend.
Oh dear - I guess this has turned into a long post.....
