Today I got Freebie Design Exchange from Carol! It was a pleasant surprise, I did not expect anything to arrive so early, especially before I mailed my package for the partner. But everything happend on the same day.
Carol chose a very pretty design for me - Martina Weber "Martina's Roses", one of my favorites . The design is very beautiful by itself but Carol stitched it on Black Jobelan which helps the design stand out so nicely. To stitch on a black fabric is not so easy, even if you have OTT-LITE . I hope it was not too hard on your eyes Carol.
The gold beaded edge of the biscornu and the gold rose button are just perfect extras which greatly complement the design and make the biscornu a real beauty. I absolutely love it!
Carol also included a chart by The Stitching Parlor which I have not seen before but I will sure enjoy stitching it. In the package there were also some fabric, hand dyed floss, pearlized pins and body lotion.
Thank you Carol for everything, you spoiled me a lot.
Well, I promised to show some more pictures of my garden. But I did not feel well last week: a terrible sore throat and fever besides I think the garden did not look its best after hard rains which we had recently.
Here are some pictures to enjoy:
Would you care for some strawberries?
Happy stitching to everybody and take care!
