A Pincushion & Pressies from Mary.

Well, I am a very lucky person, I woke up this morning not feeling the best, a bit of a headache after a poor night's sleep and guess what, I was soon cheered up by the postman. I knew that Mary was sending her Pincushion to me but I didn't expect all the lovely pressies too.
I received three lovely postcards and a special one with Mary's work on the front as well as all these lovely fibres and trims, it felt like Christmas and I was a kid again.
The detail in Mary's Pin Cushion is delightful too. So many beautiful stitches, the work that went into this Pin
Cushion is astounding. I would like to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Mary for being so generous and working so hard on the challenge. THANK YOU Mary, I will treasure your Pin Cushion, thank you for making my day. Cheers Tricia

Yes, Judy, It was so very generous of Mary to add all those goodies, I think it is such a lovely thing to do, I must try to remember to do something like that when I swap in the future there must be lots of ways to make a parcel special.

Hello Tricia

Was not sure if I had left you a comment or not. I looked at your post yesterday and was so impressed with your sampling and your experiment. Your work is beautiful, you have inspired me to pick up my embroidery needle. I have not touched embroidery for many years, although I admire embroidery very much, anyway thanks again for some more inspiration. xteresa
