I Love My New Stitching Friend Tuula!!!

When I got home from work today, I had a beautiful package in the mail from Tuula. And I do mean beautiful package!
I had to take a picture of the envelope, it is so beautiful.

Inside were my fair squares. Tuula stitched a peacock which is a small part from Long Dog Samplers "Virtue" with DMC threads.

It's kind of funny that Tuula and I should be paired up. We learned that we have the same likes. Tuula said that when she was reading my blog she kept thinking that she was reading about herself.

One thing is that we both collect thimbles. She sent me a thimble that is made from genuine reindeer bone from Lapland. She also sent me a personalized keyring that is made of tiny Lapland trees. These are both very cool! The pictures are not going to do any of these things justice. I also got a piece of banding and 2 beautiful skeins of thread.

Thank you so much, Tuula, I love everything!

Tuula is a kind and generous soul! And her stitching is gorgeous...I was fortunate to have Tuula as my partner in a SBEBB exchange earlier this year ;)
Congrats Jill! You're most deserving ;)
