I love to give gifts to my friends. I think there is no better way to say someone is special to you than making a gift for them too. So when my friend Sonja was having a birthday coming up, I decided to buy her this pretty tapestry tote while in Brugge for her stitching. I wanted to do something personal to it for her and made a zipper fob. Since the tote is sunflowers (a favorite of hers), I made a fob using the colors in the bag and a butterfly. I filled the bag with a few handwork goodies too. Happy birthday again Sonja and thanks for the wonderful high tea yesterday afternoon!
I wanted to share a few of the fabulous things I was given as gifts when we held our stitching get together here in Holland. Joni made me a scissor fob with these beautiful warm, earthy tones and a brass key charm, Angela made me a tulip pinkeep with the date 2008 as a remembrance and Hazel made a pinkeep with a potted tulip sampler motif...
...and on the back are all our names including Jos' and the year. Thank you so much ladies for the wonderful gifts to remember you by!
Isn't this sampler so beautiful?!? It was also a gift from dear Hazel. I was so touched and will cherish it forever. I love samplers and knowing the time and care she put into this one for me, makes it all the more special. I am so proud to hang this sampler in my home Hazel. Thank you very much!
