Birthday Fairy

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image HostingI heard from a Birthday Fairy that she wanted to send me a birthday treat and sure enough an envelope arrived from the US yesterday. I sat with my cup of tea and opened the envelope, inside was a lovely gift, that was so me. I got these things which are, some lovely 28ct evenweave in a beautiful colour of muted pinks and greens called Rhaspody and a Shepherd's Bush kit called 'Sweet Heart'. I am absolutely delighted as not only did the fairy choose a kit by my favourite designers Shepherd's Bush but.....it is also a Heart another favourite.
Now this fairy knows I don't have much stitching time at the moment, so the size of this design was just perfect as well. Another perfect aspect to receiving this kit is, I bought a lovely frame a few weeks ago and had not found a design the right size or style to go into it and I knew as soon as looking at this it would be just right.
Now and most important the very kind and very lovely lady who was my Birthday Fairy is... Carol... from Garden of Stitches who has bowled me over with her thoughtfulness and sprinkling Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting fairy dust of happiness across the world :-)))))

The kit and fabric from Carol

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingNow to show Carol just how much I love the kit she sent me, I have stitched it (Yes, straight away) and not only have I stitched it...I have framed it myself in the frame I had just waiting for something lovely to go init. I really love how it looks all finished and hope you do too Carol. THANK-YOU again, so very much for being so nice to me (((((Hug))))) from me to you for really making my day!!!

Oh Helen I just love your Shepherd's Bush Heart!! Carol is so sweet to do this for you! I am stitching on the scissor fob by Shepherd's Bush. You are much faster than I am!! This little heart is so pretty and you did a fantastic job stitching and framing it as well! Oh how I wish I had known that Shepherd's Bush was only about 125 miles from where I used to live in Idaho. I never even heard of them until I got on the web and lived in Texas. Oh well, I can always order things online! Debby

Blogger wouldn't let me comment yesterday! That is such a sweet gesture from Carol and I don't think you could have thanked her better than by stitching the kit right away! It's very pretty! :)

Thank you for stopping in at my blog!! I have missed you here. I started the SAL as some of the others have also, but have yet to post to it. Thank you for your comments! I really have become a rotation stitcher haven't I? :)) This project is pretty big too, but watching others will inspire me. It should be really fun!!
