A Beautiful Gift

I got a wonderful surprise in the post yesterday, a completely unexpected wedding gift from dear Karen V. Isn't it beautiful, Karen told me its a Victoria Sampler design (another of my favourite designers although I've only stitched a couple of the patterns)

the card is gorgeous too, a very special gift from a very special person. I just love it, its so beautifully stitched and finished too. Having admired, and being inspired too, by all your stitching this year Karen I feel very priviledged to be given this gift. Those of you who know about my needleroll passion will understand how thrilled I am with this gorgeous needleroll to commemorate our wedding.

Thank you again Karen, a big hug to you!
