Exchange from Kim....WOW!

Look at the beautiful box I received from Kim B  for the Stitching Friends Through Seasons

Bent Creek "Autumn Arches"
(Stitched over one...can you believe it?)

Oh my goodness....I could not believe my eyes when I opened this.  I just love Bent Creek, especially their older designs, and this is one of my favorites that I have just never gotten around to stitching.  Kim stitched this over one and I can't believe how much it changed the "look" of the design.  It will fit just perfectly by my stitching chair.   


I was giddy when I opened it to reveal these neatly wrapped little treasures!

She included a Gentle Arts Harvest thread pack, pins, buttons, ribbon and a cute pair of tiny scissors!

I also have to share this little detail.....

Kim used scrapbook paper to personalize the inside of the box....how sweet!  Needless to say, this was a great mail day.

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments and I do appreciate you giving me a few minutes of your day!  Well...in a little over a week I will by flying across the ocean and can't believe I haven't even packed...my stitching!  As we all know, it takes time to evaluate and coordinate what stitching goodies I should take...
guess I better get busy!
 Hope you have a wonderful weekend and have many happy stitches...
