Surprise for me!!

Oh my goodness! I received the sweetest surprise today from a wonderful blogging friend, Kathleen of Yesteryear Embroideries . I picked up yesterday's mail and among the bills and cards, I found a little package for me. I know I should have taken a picture of it to share, but I was so excited to have received it, that I just ripped it open. Inside, I found two sweet linens tied up with gold and red ribbon, a beautiful note, and the nicest Christmas card ever!

The doily is hand embroidered by Kathleen and features a wonderful little basket overflowing with yummy spring flowers: daisies, lavender, tulips and the cutest pansy right in the middle. Notice the edges? All hand finished. I love pansies because they look like such happy little flowers. They always make me smile when I see them whether they're in my garden, on a post card, or a beautiful hand embroidered linen (like this one)!

This darling tea towel is also made by Kathleen and is hand embroidered with two yummy roses, floating flowers and the cutest little blue butterfly. It's hand hemmed and then blanket stitched with a matching floss all the way around the edges. Talk about work! I can't imagine doing all that.

She does "hand embroidery for all occasions in all varieties of stitch and style." So if you need custom work, please contact her. Imagine having pillowcases or guest towels personalized with a hand embroidered monogram or your favorite flower/colors. You'll enjoy her blog and get to see some of her work, too. Drop by and tell her I said, "hi!"

Thanks, Kathleen!!
Blessing to all this Christmas season,

Patricia :o)

What a wonderful gift. Embroidery is so special, I have loved it since I was a child and sewed my first embroidery piece to my jeans. I got better. Enjoy your prises. TTFN

Wow, those are some of the most beautiful things. What talent! I found your blog from a comment you left on my friend Cheryl's blog (Cottage Farm Villa). I am also a Texa-calian; call Boerne home, so not too far away from you!
