This card is from Sunny (heres the picture for you Sunny!)
It is beautifully handstitched.
This card is from Janet.
It is not easy to see on this picture but the background is beautiful kantha stitching.
Thank you both very much for your cards and thank you Sheila for organising another swap for us.
For some time now I have been admiring the beautiful Cottage Garden Threads that some of my Australian friends have been using and I have been looking for a European supplier, to no avail! I happened to mention this to Maria and the lovely lady very kindly offered to send me a pack to try - how kind is that?
When the envelope arrived it not only contained the CGT but also some beautiful variegated green silk thread from Colour Streams and a gorgeous Fabric Patch!
The variegated CGT is beautiful - just my colours - as is the fabric patch
butterflies and passion flowers. (I know - I should have taken it out of the cellophane to photograph!)
Thank you very much Maria - if you don't know Maria's blog then do go and visit The Next Stage, Maria makes the most beautiful knitted throws!
I will leave you with a couple of photographs from Lyme Regis which we visited on Saturday.
And wish you all a very Happy Christmas and Peaceful (stitchy) New Year.
