A pretty gift!

When I got home from Cranberry Cottage this weekend, there was an envelope waiting for me on my doormat from my friend Margaret in Spain. She sent me a lovely wrapped package with a Christmas card...


I opened it to reveal the sweetest little pen pillow! I just love it and am going to add some glass headed pins to it and display it with my pincushion collection. Of course, come springtime, I will be using it to decorate with. She included some Needlepoint, Inc. silk thread.


Thank you so much Margaret! I really do love it.

Wow Heidi,
What a lovely gift from Margaret,
This is one of my favourite BD's patterns. Margaret really has made your Christmas surprise special by wrapping it so prettily. I love the card too.
Warm hugs Angela

You're so welcome Heidi - happy that you like it.
I added a picture to my blog now that it's no longer a secret :)

Well, maybe you have been a good little girl this year. That was a very nice gift from Margaret. If you had been bad, Sint would have had you in his bag and you would have been in Spain.
Love you, Mom
