Hello All! The early birthday goodness continues! Look at what I received yesterday in the mail from my dear friend Harmien! Lovely isn't it?!
Little House Needleworks - Nature's Beauty
Finished as: Basket
When my dear friend the Postman came yesterday we all were outside playing, the kids actually playing and I *trying* to stitch :) Well the dear man pulled up to our curb but didn't go to the mailbox. That is my first clue that there must be something that won't fit in my mailbox, for I know he wasn't coming to sit and chat! Well he pulled out the package and handed to my eagerly waiting children, thrusting their hands in his face....we thanked him and he drove off....then I snatched the package out of my daughter's hands and went at it, for I recognized the handwriting!
Boy Harmien sure knows how to come through, yes?! This had to have taken Harmien a LOT of time not only to stitch this, but to do the exquisite finishing AND see the wee green square card? She stitched a flower from the design for it! WOW! And gave me the sweetest little notepad to boot! Words cannot describe how astounded I am to know that she stitched this way back in early spring, just for me and my birthday :) What a wonderful person you are Harmien, and when it comes to friendship, she wrote the book!
I love everything about it, as I know Harmien *knew* I would. Not only did she pick my favorite designer, BUT she picked a lovely finish. I have it in my foyer for all to gaze upon it's loveliness! I stood and stared at it for a LONG time myself! (and twisted it round and round to see how she finished it!) Oh, and you will see that dear Harmien had a hard time parting with this lovely...well I can imagine...but I want you to know Harmien, when I finished the Muscat Blue Sewing set...I had one devil of a time as well, but it did say "from VP to HR" so the deed was done! LOL!
Thank you Harmien, how can I thank you enough? Not only does your friendship hold a special place in my heart but I have this treasured goody to ever remind me of you! Thank you!!!
Until next time....
