Today I came home to a special surprise in my mailbox!
I won a RAK giveaway from Angela last week, which was a surprise itself, I am not usually lucky. It is a BEAUTIFUL needle and pins box that Angela painted. Look at the sweet card, love it!!
It is so beautifully stitched and finished...
...with such sweet details, charm, and trim....
It is just PERFECT for holding my scissors and notions! LOVE it!!
I can't even explain how special it is to receive this gift. As a stitcher, I have made many gifts for others over the past 30 years, but I have NEVER received one myself since there are no stitchers in my circle of family and friends. I think that this idea of RAKs in the blogging community is so special and it is nice to be a part of it. I hope to send out such love and kindness to others as well very soon.
Thank you so much, Angela!! :D
As for my weekend and week of stitching, I have been working on Elizabeth Hancock faithfully, although not as far along as I thought I would be. I had hoped to have the top section done, the flower pot and house.... Almost!!
And so, stitching Elizabeth continues on!
Happy Weekend and Happy Stitching to you ALL!!!
