Daisy, Tulip & Bluetiful Gifts...

As I shared in this post I am continuing to stitch my flowers.  This is the daisy from January.   Yes I am very behind however I am not worried.  I am taking my time.  Glad that I am because I stitch when the mood strikes me and I never know how I will stitch a flower until I put the needle and threads/yarns in my hands.  I really like this daisy.

Here is the tulip.  I like it however my feeling is that it needs something more.  With no end project in my mind I am not certain what I want to do.  This tulip makes me happy.

 Speaking of happy...this is some surprise mail I received recently.  I have found my "twin sister" through blogging.  She of course is much younger than I, however we must be twins.  Both our names begin with an S.  We share the exact same month and day for our birthdays.  And our husbands each have the very same first name.  Now what are the odds?  I am pretty sure you know Suz and follow her blog Suztats.
She hand created a beautiful card for me and wrapped everything in blue.  Suz has paid attention and knows blue is my heartthrob favorite color.

This is her gift to me.  Hand stitched and hand tatted Suz has lovingly spent so many hours I cannot imagine making me this shades of blue stitch sampler.  I am swooning and ever so grateful.  Finding friends far away that share a love of needle and thread is such a blessing.

The delicate rose fabric is the backing on the blues stitch sampler.  The gorgeous hand dyed blue silk with braiding and tatting is a bluetiful needlebook. The silver flower and butterfly are more of my favorites.  Suz has also added a very special Swarovski Crystal to the sampler and the needlebook.  Thank you sew very much from my heart Suz Dear.  You have spoiled me and I am blessed.
I continue to be amazed by the generosity of bloggers and can only hope I share and return as much as I receive.  
We have had no more rain but some may come in the next week.  Meanwhile magically our frogs have returned to our pond and are singing their unique songs of love.  Daffodils are blooming even though they took quite a beating down with our previous rain storms.  Life is good.  Safety and Warmth to those across this nation who are suffering more extreme snow and ice storms.  Britain is still flooding and we pray for them.  Sochi is wowing us all with amazing dedication of athletes from all over this world.
With Valentine's and Hearts and Love this month of February lets all feel loved and blessed.
You will still find me spending my time in my studio and sewing room.  I am blissfully being creative.  May you be doing what makes you happiest...
