I must share these beautiful gifts with readers!! Last week I received a very large package from my friend and fellow Blogger, Wanda-Maria, and was totally overwhelmed at the contents [still am]. Thank you so much to Wanda for your generosity, and caring spirit. I have put together the above collage, which when enlarged, will show mostly handmade gifts, and some purchased souvenirs. The little door hangers and porcelain clogs are simply too cute, and the richly embroidered bags show Wanda's passion for embroidery and colour.
I have also taken a few close-up photographs to share the wonderfully flamboyant way Wanda has used fabric and stitch. There are rows and rows of machine stitching, and the floral trims are so full and exotic. You really have to feel them to know how much work has gone into making each one. I honestly have never seen such full handmade blooms. Mine are really puny compared to these!!!
