Yesterday DH and I went on a trip to the western coast of The Netherlands. Friends were having a vacation there and we promised to come over for a day. Luckily we had sunny, warm weather, so we could enjoy a walk by the seaside.
When we came home in the evening who was waiting for us? Our neighbour! While we were away, he answered the door for the postman, bringing in a package from Pam. In it a most gorgeous ornament.
Pam chose to stitch me this because of my patio garden. She also has a garden and enjoys, like me, the birds and butterflies. The cardinal is her favorite.
The designer is Diane Graebner, stitched on 32 ct. Crystal Aerial by Picture This Plus.Pam really did a lovely job, it is a perfectly stitched ornament and perfectly finished too.
She also sent me a lot of goodies, I sure can use! Among them a set of notecards marked with a "J", two cards of Splendor silk floss, a cute little star (Mill Hill), fine blue ribbon and a package of cute lamps, from the Holiday Collection Jack Frost (Dress It Up).
I also promised to take pictures of quilting, so here they are. I decided to quilt it with a darker colour, so I can really see what I'm doing, being the first time I quilt. Next time I will opt for a lighter colour, I think it looks better. The pink lines in between are going to fade in a few days.
