It was my birthday the other day, and I received some very beautiful gifts! I'd like to share some of them with you.
From my husband, the Wedgwood "Queen of Hearts" teapot, cup and saucer. No more tea bags in old coffee mugs for me!
And from my parents, who just returned from America yesterday....
A couple of fabulous books:
And many other little goodies, including quilt patterns and quilt postcards. Mum bought these gorgeous things at none other than The Shelburne Museum!!!!! I don't think she quite gets how cool that is!
Anyway, she bought me another book, which I already have:
Hence the giveaway!

As you can see, all the yellow stitching is done.
I have done some free-form stippling (for the first time ever) in the green "feather":
I found the stippling quite challenging!
I'm really enjoying this project, even though it's going to be a pretty odd little item when all is said and done. Maybe Mary (our daughter) could use it as a sookie rag to suck on, or a placemat when she starts eating at the table.
