Precious Friends & Gifts...
This is my friend Tag. Formally Taggart of Brynwood Needleworks. Tag does his very own blog posts on Tuesdays so definitely check them out here.
Here is Tag with his family. "Handsome" is a musician and plays lovely music that Donna shares with us. Now I know you follow Donna of Brynwood Needleworks. She is completely talented with all types of needle and thread...both hand and machine. I am so happy and proud to share Donna's friendship. I feel like we are sisters yet we have never met in person. If we lived closer than the Gulf Coast vs. the Pacific Ocean I would be taking her classes and learning such wonderful needlework techniques. However I am not able to move so we stay in contact via blogging and email.
One day recently I received a package from Donna as a complete shock since I was not expecting anything and hadn't won one of her fabulous give-away's. In the package were some very beautiful gifts she made just for me. I had seen her blog post of these items she had completed and was drooling but never thought they were made for me. This is a bookmark and I adore it. The little fairy and bling button on the soft scripted and rose fabric is beautiful.
And...a needlebook of my very own that Donna made. The scripted and rose fabric is so feminine. The little teacup ribbon is just so special. I feel like we are sitting and sipping tea together sharing stories and being creative.
Inside the needlebook are pages of the softest wool for keeping needles and pins. There are also pockets for special keepsakes. This needlebook is very thoughtful and beautiful. Thank you Donna Dear.
And if all the above was not enough...Donna made me one of her very special Ribbon Embroidered Rose Strawberry pin cushions. I am swooning with delight over this as I admire her stitching so very much. I can honestly say I will not be putting anything sharp into this silk ribbon embroidered piece of art. I feel very special to receive such heartfelt and handmade gifts from such a dear lady. Donna you are a gem and I am proud and honored to be the keeper of these heirloom treasures. Thank you very sincerely.
Blogging has expanded my world and I am very grateful.
I do pray everyone is safe from the snowstorms and what Mother Nature is giving us. Our weather has been cold but sunny with a complete lack of snow and rain...so far. Here we know it can snow as late as June with March and April being horrible Winter months so I am not digging out the summer clothes yet.
Valentine's Day/Week/Month is here and in full mode. May your chocolate be abundant.
Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...
