Now , I have a little story to tell and I am so happy about this I have to share it with you...Do you remember I made this Chatelaine a little while ago for an exchange I was in?
A lady who was already a stitcher from Australia who has neither a blog or album (yet!!), got in touch with me to see if I would mind her doing a Chatelaine the same for a special friends birthday and to ask me how it was done. I was of course more than happy to oblige and really pleased to have inspired her to do one and set about mailing her a list of steps as to how I did it :-)) Then imagine my surprise and delight when yesterday this same lady, after a few weeks of us being in touch, emailed me the pictures of her finished Chatelaine :-)) It has been made so beautifully and even has the same backing fabric as the one I did, chiffon ribbon like I used was unavailable for this lady so she chose to use a co-ordinating satin ribbon and I think it looks just lovely :-)) So I would like to present to you in this picture below Lyn's Chatelaine and I think you will agree with me what a wonderful job she has made of it :-)))
Thank-you Lyn for sharing your pictures with me and allowing me to put them on my blog and especially for giving me one of those special moments that make stitching so worth while. It is so nice to be part of a community where we all inspire each other in different ways and to say if a certain few ladies had not inspired me with their special pieces in albums and blogs then I might not have even come online to share what little bits I do too :-)))
Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks again for reading my blog!
