Christmas Mail


Last Friday I received a lovely package from the UK.  Each season I receive a hand made card and small gift from my dear friend Isabell, and I would just like to share these with everyone.  Thank you so much Isabell for always putting so much thought and time into your greetings.  I do appreciate it so much, as I know this year has not been easy for you.  The camera didn't want to take a good photo today.  For some reason, the contrast in colours causes a few problems.  The background is the fat quarter that Isabell sent.  It is a Jinny Beyer print [my very favourite fabric designer!!], in varying shades of green.  Enjoy.

I am trying to finish another set of napkins and placemats, as well as starting a new piece of Hardanger.  I need to finish the napery before Christmas, so hopefully will have some photographs to share in a few days.

Thank you most sincerely to all who read my blog and take such a keen interest in my ravings.
