Gifts of Love

Ive finally unpacked my weekend suitcase and can show you the beautiful gifts that I was showered with on Saturday.

Clare - needlewoman extraordinaire - had hand sewn a beautiful patchwork Dresden plate. Clare has a knack of putting random fabrics together so well. I absolutely love it and ive decided to frame it and hang it in my kitchen.

Lisa presented me with a lovely collection of heart shaped items - and some really pretty vintage braid. I have plans for the braid (watch this space) and I have put the stunning glass heart on a ribbon with a clasp (that I bought at the Manchester stitching show). The heart shaped marshmallows will be placed in the heart shaped bowl and I will time how long they last!

Thank you ladies for my gifts. I love them. xxxx

Oh I may just have to nick that idea about framing Clare's patchwork!
So pleased you liked your gifts, like Christy commented you are VERY much appreciated.
Am looking forward to seeing your make with the braid.
