Lucky Mail Day

What a lucky girl I am (yes, I am still a girl. I will always be a girl. I will be 95 and still be a girl :)... Iris was well enough to be able to stitch a return gift for me on the Crazy Exchange - she has been suffering with bad hands and wrists for 2 months, so I was more than happy to wait for her to recover to stitch my return exchange, I can't imagine not being able to stitch or even use my hands or wrists for so long :(

But the wait was most definitely worth it - just look at this wonderful hornbook she stitched for me!! And, not only did she stitch and finish it herself (and she made the card too!), but her father made the hornbook himself - how talented a family is that?!



Thank you so much Iris, I absolutely adore it - my first hornbook ever! Now, I will have to go and stitch one for myself :)

Happy stitching!
