Staci is amazing, those are the beautiful blocks she sent me (and she managed to stitch them so quickly too!)
This came so beautifully wrapped i did not want to open it and spoil it, then curiosity got the better of me and i had to pick! Inside i found the most beautifully and neatly stitched squares, they are called "Tree of Life Workbox Pincushion" designed by Phyllis Hoffman from the Spring 2001 issue of Sampler and Antique needlework. She has coffee dyed the fabric slightly which suits the colours of the threads perfectly.
As an extra treat she also sent me a bundle of DMC variations threads and a lovely Colorado calendar. Thank-you so much! I just love it, i am so overwhelmed by the kindness and genrosity of stitchers all over the world!
Thank-you Staci- my squares will be on its way to you very soon,
