P.I.F. post has arrived

It is always good news when one hears that something has arrived safely by post and I have now heard that both the " Pay if forward" items have arrived. Posted on the same day  but to two different countries the first to arrive was  this little heart sent to Mouse of Tales of a Stitching Mouse.   I was surprised how quickly it arrived.
In Autumn tonings, the fabric is soft apricot Belfast linen and I managed to find some Chameleon Perle threads for the Roses.   There are always plenty of pinks to be had but good apricots and reds are harder to find in the perle threads that I like for the bullion stitch roses.
 
Just when I wondered if the 2nd one had gone astray in the post I received word from Evelyn of EEF's Needle..... that it had safely arrived. This one is stitched on linen that has been dyed with a fruit tea and  that has given it a pink blush, again stitched with Chameleon Perle threads. These threads are hand dyed and come from South Africa and there are a lovely range of shades.
 
I have notced too that the number of followers for my blog has increased, welcome to the new ones,
I hope you will visit often and find something you enjoy reading about here.
 Have a good day everyone with plenty of stitching.
