A gift from Barbara



I was so thrilled today when the doorbell rang and there was the postie with a big bron paper pagage for me. I coulkd see a little flowery fabric poking out one corner and ripped it open. WOW! Two gorgeous patchwork cushion form my Belstead MATE Barbara! They were bound up with printed tape 'love much, laugh often,live long'. To be re-cycled of course

The gift tag is so pretty too.....I shall blog it another time.....

One has been hand embroidered with Shabby Chic'and the other 'Vintage'

I know exactly what she intends me to do with them so here they are, on a chair in my summerhouse ready to be enjoyed whenever I escape to the garden with a cup of coffee and creative magazine....or read the huge list of messages from Kelly Rae's on-line class list which I have printed off and took up 15 pages of paper!!!

I shall have fun getting contact with them all but unfortunately, shall be away from my computer over the weekend...it is a Bank Holiday here in England and I shall be spending it at the Boat Club in clayhithe....must pack plenty of hand sewing to get stuck into!

Hi Moira.
How lovely to meet you and to find that you're from the UK too!! What gorgeous gifts and so pretty - what a kind friend you have.
Looking forward to sharing Kelly-Rae's "Flying" adventure together. But for now, have a wonderfully relaxing and truly special May Bank Holiday weekend.
