I Never Was Patient

This year I participated in the Stitching Bloggers Birthday Club. I had Michele, whose birthday was back in early January and my birthday is this month. I received my package today.

I read a post from Anna S. yesterday and when I saw who my package was from I knew what it was. Now, I could wait a few days, maybe, but there is no way I could wait 3+ weeks. So...I opened it.

OMG! It was wonderful. Anna, you really checked me out because everything is so me.

First there was this...


It is so beautiful. The stitching and the finishing. And, it is purple. WOW. Then, there was all of this...


A very cute pattern of pumpkins, pink fabric--love this--great for my pink stitches, lots of purple threads--2 different silks, Weeks, Sampler Threads, Crescent Colors and Impressions. Great colors. And, a hedgehog. He is so cute!

I probably should have waited but I just couldn't and since I was having kind of a blah day, I thought why not.

Thank you so much, Anna. I love everything and I can tell you really put alot of thought into it as everything fits me to a tee!

I'm so very glad you liked it all, Jill, indeed I tried to match your tastes as desribed on your blog :)
It is the first time I tried this type of finishing for a box (painting + fabric) so please excuse any imperfections - I also had to leave home in a hurry and well, you know already that the felt hedgehog is very nice on one side and very imperfect on the other. Sorry for that - it was either fast, fast, fast or sending it in November :( In any case, happy birthday very soon!

What a wonderful birthday present this is. I love this kind of finishing but have never tried it myself. There are so many things still to learn ...
