Gifts of Love

I finally got round to unpacking from my weekend jaunt and can now show you the lovely gifts I received.
Clare - needlewoman extraordinaire - had hand sewn this beautiful Dresden plate patchwork. She puts fabrics together beautifully. I am going to frame it and hang it in my kitchen.

Lisa brought me a selection of wonderful heart shaped goodies and some pretty vintage braid. I have plans for the braid (watch this space) . I have put the gorgeous glass heart on a ribbon I bought at the stitchcraft show in Manchester (and am wearing it today along with the earrings). The marshmallows were toasted on my fire in the garden last night and the gorgeous little ramekin is waiting to sit on a painted shelf in the kitchen.
Thank you so much ladies - I love my

I haven't shown our garden before in all it's (not so) glory, just snippets when photoing other stuff. It'slong and anrrow and has just been neglected by us for quite a few years, other priorities and all that. It's just getting a general tidy and a good deal of gravel.
You must have had a very quiet day yesterday if you were able to do lots of blog reading1

hey this the second comment below Lisa today!!

I think it should fit perfectly in a square frame, from our favourite big shop! If I'd got my finger out I would have done it for you!

I've just had a deja vu moment because I was sure I'd commented on this post earlier perhaps I didn't check it had published properly - anyway - I think I said something like what lovely gifts to remind you of your special day:)xx
