Birthday Exchange Gifts

 Last week I received the most amazing parcel from  Gaby which left me totally gobsmacked. It included such an array of wonderful gifts, including the cross stitch book Blumchen by Christianne Dahlbeck, which has been on my wish list for a while.  Here they all are…

It was such a wonderful surprise 🙂 and I’m so happy. Thank you so much, Gaby. I really appreciate your kindness.

My Gloriana thread (Elizabethan Green) finally arrived so I’m back to stitching Marriage of the Minds. Will post an update soon.

Happy Stitching 😉
