I received the lovelest surprise in the mail yesterday. It was just the pick me up I needed after the week I had had.
My friend Sandie from Abeautifulcraft sent me this wonderful gift of cream fabrics (I had mentioned to her I had a serious lack of cream in my fabric stash), beautiful threads (that I’m still drooling over…lol) – including some antique silk in a gorgeous old gold colour and some Rahmahal Art Silk which I hadn’t used or even seen before , a tea bag – so I can enjoy a cuppa and think of her, some lovely printed panels and some lovely old beads.
There was also this stunning butterfly that Sandie had embroidered and embellished with lovely beads on a black velveteen background. Simply stunning.
I am starting to think along the lines of a butterfly cushion with this featured prominately. The cushion might even end up in the shape of a butterfly – however that part of the idea needs refinement.
Thank you so much Sandie for such a lovely treasure trove of gifts. I do appreciate them.
