Stitchers Angel swap

Look what arrived in our mailbox:
Could it be.... oh yes it is.... the parcel from my Stitchers Angel! I can finally find out who she is, she has been e-mailing me, writing the sweetest messages, and I have had no clue who she is.

Look, a beautiful bag, with THREE more presents inside- and would you look at those gorgeous colours... WOW! By the time I had read the card and opened these lovely gifts I was in tears, the time my wonderful angel Liz has spent on making these lovely gifts for me, the beautiful work she does, and her thoughtfulness was just too much. Liz- I love you! you are a true angel with a bright sparkling halo and bright shining wings!
Liz made a beautiful bag with May Britt's stitchery on one side, and a Bronwyn Hayes stitchery on a pocket on the opposite side. She also made a really neat sewing roll to take with me on trips- complete with needles, thread, a tape measure and buttons.

And would you look at the pretty couch companion, Liz- I LOVE IT ALL! The colours are just perfect! Liz also sent me a birthday present (which made me cry even more...), an orange writing pad, an orange pen and pencil, and lovely Koala bear fabric.
Thank you so much Liz, you are just the most amazing person, and I can't wait to get to know you!
Thank you for stopping by, I love to read your comments!

  9. Wow- those are really stunning. What a lovely, thoughtful gift-giver! One of the best things I have found about blogs is that I can get a better sense of what my swappee will like- looks like she did the same for you. Beautiful!
