A random act of kindness for Andrea


Hi everyone, I hope you are all fine and happy. 

I have recently finished this random act of kindness for Andrea over at The Craft Room blog here  .
Andrea sent me a RAK last year, it was a beautiful pinkeep made in blue and trimmed in gorgeous ribbon. I was so thrilled with such a lovely gift, ever since that day I have always intended to make Andrea a surprise gift too- well here it is!

I designed the box and made it in pink because I knew Andrea liked this colour combination and also liked boxes. I made the little bottle cap pincushion to match, it is trimmed with swarovski crystals - of course!

There are more photos below.
You can see Andreas rak to me(click here,) just scroll down the page.

Stitching news
I have recently finished a couple of exchanges but I cannot show them yet until they have been received by my partners. 





Thanks for stopping by, have a happy, stitchy day!

Absolutely gorgeous Lynn. Love the little bottle cap thingy. Your finishing is always so perfect. I need lessons or something. Hope the builders aren't driving you too mad and that you can stitch a little.
Lots of Love

I love the pink box and the alphabet! Please send me the alphabet you kindly offered in your

Lynn everything you stitch is so beautiful and really worth waiting for. What a true RAK made from the heart. So much time and care has gone into it. The box is amazing and such a wonderful place to store little treasures. No wonder Andrea is thrilled.

You may be out of sight but you're not out of mind :>)
Looking forward to when things quieten down for you both in the house and out :>)
Warm wishes Angela xx

What a beautiful box and tiny pincushion, just stunning!!

Gorgeous, Lynn. I have a question ~ can you tell me how to best adhere a small flat piece of aida cloth to a piece of cardstock as a bookmark? I'm using scraps and adding monograms to them, going to fray the edges, but need to know what type of glue to use.

Big TX Hugs,
