Received my giveaway from Geta

Received my giveaway from Geta today.  The photo doesn't do it justice.  It is so much more beautiful in person.The fabric has more shades than are visible.  It is so pretty.  I feel so lucky to have one of her lovely pieces.

Stitcher's Angel Surprise

I received a wonderful surprise in the mail today. A package from my Stitcher's Angel Anne who lives in Norway. The embroidery must have taken quite a long time. I have never seen stitches so tiny. She sent my 2 purses, a little pouch and a mini quilt. One of my favorite colors is Lavender and I just love everything that she sent me. It was a really fun swap and so nice to be in touch with people all over the world.
