Friends fill your life with joy,
your soul with sunshine
and your heart with joy.

Our Stitching Friends Group has just had their Secret Friend gift exchange, and while I can't show you what I stitched , we don't reveal who we are till December and so to post it here would be a give away I am thrilled to share with you what I have received.

The theme for the exchange was "Pansy flowers" Here is what I received,  isn't this little brooch just exquisite, the stump work pansy  is just 2cm across ( three quarters of an inch) and the whole brooch 5cm (2 inches) The background appears to be deep purple in my photo is really black. If my secret friend reads my blog- know that I love it and say a big thank you to you for stitching such a beautiful piece for me.
I am off to Wellington this weekend Barryn is driving up to collect me, and he and Jackie have tickets to take me to the World of Wearable Art show next Tuesday night, I am really looking forward to that. Flying home on the Thursday so will blog all the news of the trip after that.
                                             Meanwhile Happy stitching everyone.
