Good morning everyone!
I'm just about to get myself ready for a lovely day out with my best friend. She's coming down to Winchester for a spot of shopping and we're going to my favourite restaurant, Buddy's, the American Diner themed restaurant! They do the best burgers ever.
But before all that, I thought I'd post about Lesleyanne's Birthday Stitch Surprise gift that I know has arrived safe and sound. No stitched piece in this one as I already stitched up something for Lesleyanne for a previous exchange. I didn't think she'd want two botched, misshapen cross stitched pieces from me cluttering up her home! Instead, I opted to send out a small parcel of goodies that I hoped would be useful.
In her email, Lesleyanne told me she liked Christmas best of all. Here's what I came up with . . .
I sent my friend a cut of gingham fabric, two lengths of ric rac, some metallic DMC threads, a pack of button and two Malteaser Bunnies. I know the bunnies aren't that festive, but I thought Lesleyanne's two boys might appreciate them!
I just had to get a close up pic of these gorgeous buttons, I was so happy when I found these. I hope Lesleyanne can find use for them, or if not, aren't they just pretty to look at? :)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Mine is going to be busy, but I get to see all my favourite people and that cannot be bad :)
Best wishes to all,
