Speechless...

I'm in a state of shock. I really am. I got my needleroll exchange from Anne today and, well, look!


How perfect is it? Not only is it stitched and finished beautifully, but it's designed just for me with two cats watching the fishies (having eaten the ones at the top!) And it's red! With beads. I know Anne's not a red fan, and I know she knows I am. It's gorgeous! I love it!

But that's not all. Look at this too. A red fiesta! My favourite thread (Gloriana Cranberry) and needles (Piecemakers 28), some Lavender Mist fabric we talked about a while ago (it's definitely pink not lavender!), a notepad with a black cat on it and a beautiful bag from Anne's trip to Hong Kong that is going to be used and used and used....


I can't believe this is all for me. I don't know what to say. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Anne! It would have been special just getting the needleroll but this... I'm lost for words.

(Obviously you'll have to wait for pictures of Petal Fairy! I couldn't share this post with anything else!)

  10. What glowing praise {blushing} ;) I loved designing and stitching this one for you ... and I have to admit, I'm now a converted redwork fan too - you can still keep your pink stuff, but I would definitely take redwork any day now! :D
