… I really am. I have a birthday exchange going with Gaby in Germany. Look what had arrived in the mail when I got home from work last Friday… 🙄

Birthday Exchange from Gaby in Germany

The package consisted of various booklets of European cross stitch design, a humongous pincushion, a biscornu, some lovely braid, a cute red stitching pocket, wooden buttons, a scissors fob and the most gorgeous metal hanger. Thank you so much, Gaby. This is just awesome! I feel so completely spoilt. Thank you again, Gaby. This is such a surprise.

Gaby blogged about my exchange to her in this post.

On the stitching front, have made some progress with Sally Spencer (BOAF) but ran out of threads and had to put it aside while I wait for my order to arrive. I finished off two small designs in the meantime, which I’ll show you next post.

Spring is almost here! Happy Stitching 😉
