I had to share some more heartfelt gifts I received from some blogging friends. The ever-so-talented Pat ~ Birds Nest on the Ground made me this pincushion! It looks big in these photos but it's just the right size to fit in the palm of your hand. Think about that when you look at the embroidery on this. Those little daisies are so tiny and dainty. Notice the beaded edging...gorgeous! She even added pins with blue and white beads! I love the ribbon embroidered roses! I used to do ribbon embroidery years ago. Maybe I'll show you some of mine later this week. You must visit Pat's blog to see her amazing needlework! She is so talented!
I also received a gift from my blogging friend Carol~Meadowsweet Days. I have to show you the beautiful bag first.
I think these French Dragees look pretty sexy in their beautiful, see-through bag.
You may remember that I tried to find these to decorate my Christmas cookies and found out that they are illegal in California because they contain trace amounts of silver. Carol was so sweet and surprised me with some! I may even pull out the pink ones for Valentines Day cookies! You must go visit Carol and see her gorgeous conservatory! I dream of having a conservatory one day!
Thank you Pat and Carol!
