I would like to share with you some photos of a gift that a very dear friend sent me. I was so touched by her kindness and by the time and love that must have went into making it. My very talented friend's name is Margaret, and here is a link to her blog to see more of her work.
It is a prayer pillow, or another name for it she says is a 'biscornu', which apparently is French for 'quirky'! The cross on the front is beautiful, but the back is where I overlooked the amount of detailed work put into it. I honestly thought she had bought the material mottled like that and then added the wording, but I was sooo wrong.. Margaret actually stitched every single stitch to make that mottled background- how neat is looks.
Thank you once again Margaret, for your very welcome gift, and of course the lovely card also.
I am so very blessed to have made a couple of really lovely friends on the internet, through crafting. I have never met them, and probably never will, yet these friends have been so very supportive and we have fun sharing our highs and our lows also. You know who you are and I thank God for each one of you.xx
I am looking forward to this evening, when my daughter and her boyfriend arrive from Scotland to spend a week with us. I know things will be upside down and I'll be even more sore and tired, but I can't wait to see them.
