Stitching news and gifts.

Hi everyone, it has been quite a while since my last post as I  have been quite busy over the last few weeks!

Here is my work in progress on Country Cottage Needleworks. I have actually worked on this since I took this picture and it is now nearly finished!    
More pictures below


I have a couple of private exchanges arranged over the next few months which should be fun, I have just received one from my friend Yana in Russia, although I am going to wait until my next post to show the pictures, just wait until you see them, as the gifts Yana sent are  gorgeous!  I sent Yana's exchange three weeks ago and she has not received it yet, but Yana has assured me that sometimes parcels can take 4 weeks from England, fingers crossed that it arrives safely.   

I had a lovely 50th birthday, I received a beautiful gift from Jill at Purple Peacock blog here, Jill is so generous, I was totally amazed at the beautiful goodies Jill sent me, thankyou so much Jill!
Enclosed were some gorgeous silk threads, pins and needles and some tatting thread.

Here are the threads close up, they are lovely colours!

Here is a picture of the beautiful card my friend Diane sent to me, isn't it lovely!
And this is the lovely bouquet of flowers my son sent to me.

My husband bought me a beautiful watch.

Here is a lovely biscornu made by Connie using one of my patterns, it actually is a pattern for a little pillow but Connie had a good idea to make it into a biscornu - it has turned out beautiful don't you think?  
 
This is the back of the biscornu, this part was designed by Connie.
You can find Connies blog here
Until next time, have a lovely stitchy week!
