One of the most wonderful blessings in life are special friends! You know each others loves, habits, desires and dreamings. So when Sue, my dear friend, Sue, arrived for a stay with her husband, Ian they came bearing this beautiful basket full of sewing bits to feed my passion of sewing creativity. Thank you Sue for the beautiful gift and for the time you spent scouting the Op Shops and gift shops - I am in your debt! Wow what a time ahead to use these lovely braids, lace and fabrics to embroider.
