This is my lovely birthday bouquet made into an arrangement. I had just the perfect xtras in the garden to add to it. Its not often in the little cottage that I have such a large floral arrangement so I have mocved a small table and place it across the room from my chair so that I can truly enjoy them.
There was a time in my life ( working as a florist ) that arranging such a lovely big collection of flowers was an every day occurance now its a delightful thrill.
I want also to share tow of the delightful embroidered gifts I have received. Firstly from my friend Ann a delightful little heart fob.
And then from my secret friend this one, I hope she reads my blog because I would love to know what thread she used. I just love the shadings, and I am fascinated with the stitch used in the centre.
Annette from California Stitcher recently showed some Pouches she was making. I have been spoilt as I have received 3 different sized ones as part of my birthday gift. visit her blog and you can see the lovely ones she sent me. Need to get some better photos of them so I can share with you.
That will be next time.
Till then Happy stitching
