Thank you so much for all your comments about Karen's gift. I really appreciate them all and that you take the time to comment! To those that have only just clicked on the A Mon Ami Pierre site - it's nice to do some enabling!
My second surprise gift made it to Becky - so that's two parcels safely and really quickly received :)
Here's the little hanging cushion I made for her. It's from a Waxing Moons Design that Linda at Countrystitch sent me as a thank you for being a loyal customer. As soon as I saw it I knew it was meant to be stitched for Becky! It's on one of my favourite Countrystitch colours - Tussock. It's stuffed very lightly so it can hang or be used as a regular cushion.
This was partly a birthday present for Becky and partly a thank you to her for running two of the BBs I'm part of and for being such a lovely person!
Last, a quick message for Tracy who left a comment: If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I can send you a PDF of the House Sampler Gameboard freebie. (That goes for anyone else who'd like a copy actually!)
