WOW! WOW! WOW!

That is the only way I can think of to describe the absolutely stunning gift I received from my stitching sister, Angela. Angela had emailed me to let me know that my birthday gift was on it's way. I certainly wasn't expecting it to arrive so quickly. I emailed Angela to let her know it had arrived and I was being a good girl and had put it to one side until my birthday. Angela emailed me and told me to open it. Yay! This is the beauty I found inside. Angela stitched this design for me as we both share a love of reading and already knew I loved the design, especially since she had previously asked if I wanted to stitch it along with her later in the year, sneaky do you not think?



CCN The Book Store
32ct Mushroom Lugana
using DMC threads
Finished as a Stitcher's Box

This is the inside of the box together with the lovely book mark she also sent along with a couple of books that have already been taken upstairs ready to be read.



Thank you Angela. I will treasure it and your friendship forever.
