A Package from Portugal!! Whoo Hoo!!

A package from Portugal arrived this morning. It turns out that Sandra from "Flores as cores" was my secret swap partner in Linda's bag/bucket swap. Sandra sent me my bag beautifully wrapped in pretty paper and it was not just the bag she sent....

This is the front of the bag....

This is the back.. notice my name beautifully stitched down the bottom. No one else can claim it now that it has my name on it - literally!!

She must have been reading my blog to know that I love pink and green together not to mention roses!! Isn't she clever? Her attention to detail is amazing and every stitch is perfectly done.

As well as the bag she also included, a little zipper purse, a needle case, a scissor keep, a little pin cushion and a selection of beautiful fine Portuguese lace.
I will save those for something special!!

Sandra said, in her note to me, that she was a beginner at stitchery? What...?
I think she is very modest about her abilities don't you??
Sandra has done a wonderful job and created somthing that I will cherish forever.
Make sure you pop over to her blog and tell her what a great job she did.
Thank you so much Sandra.
