Mailbox Surprises!

Barbara from Mainely Stitching sent me this wonderful pinkeep as a lovely way of saying thank you. Something, I told her was absolutely not necessary. However, I love this pinkeep. Barbara says she took the little lady from CHS's a New England Village. The alphabet also came from CHS designs. Done in silks by V. Clayton on 28 count linen. I adore these colors. She also sent me some yummy candy, but my children have absconded with that! Thanks so much Barbara!

Next, my wonderful winter exchange came from Vonna ! She made me this utterly gorgeous basket using a Shepherd's Bush design called snow. She used her own colorway. This neat basket has ties on each side of the lid to help keep it in place on the basket. See Vonna's blog for some better pictures. Vonna's finishing is amazing and I do believe she has made a basket tutorial for this. She also sent me a lovely piece of Sassy's fabric called honey. Which I can't wait to try. Thanks so much Vonna-I love this exchange!
