What a nice timing!!!
I was so excited and I opened her parcel immediately after I had received it!!!
Here is what she's stitched for me and what she had sent me for the last Christmas!
Of course Su's stitching and finishing is perfect as always, as you know!
She stitched CHS design for me!
This is simply beautiful, isn't this?! I really love it!!!
She used beautiful iridescent colour's silk for the back, it's absolutely gorgeous!
And it matches very well with the ribbon to hang on the tree!!
And this is an additional wonderful wonderful present from her!
Do you remember that I was looking for this "Willow Tree" doll before?
Friends had told me where I can buy online, but actually they said they are not sending any their products to Japan (Asia), maybe because it's fragile...?
So, I haven't been able to buy any of it, but now it's with me!!!
It's in front of me in the real life, thanks to sweet Su!!!!!
And you know, this doll's title (name) is "FRIENDSHIP"!!!
It made me almost shed tears... not almost... actually I teared a bit...
What a sweet person she is!!!!!
And how beautiful this doll is!!!
We both have quite similar collections.
We like to collect, Lladro, Nao, Goebel (Hummel), Willow Tree figures, etc...
I truly love this "FRIENDSHIP" Willow Tree doll, it's absolutely stunning!
Now she is on the cupboard where I can see anytime when I'm in living room!!
And she didn't forget to send me a chocolate, lol.
This reindeer chocolate is also soooooo cute! Of course I won't eat him, he is also in the cupboard now! :D
Thank you sooooooo much, Su! I'm sure I will treasure them forever! xxxxx
And here is what I had stitched and sent her for our exchange!
When I saw this design, soon I had imagined Su and decided to stitch this design for her!
This design is so sweet and beautiful, so I was very enjoyed stitching along!
And also want to stitch one more for myself, later when I have time!
It was from JCS Ornament issue 2007, but it's not Christmassy at all (don't you think?), so if I stitched one for myself, I think I would be able to put it on somewhere in my house whole year!
By the way, I used dark green velvet for around the stitched piece, and used the same fabric for the back as well.
And trimmed by light green twisted code and added four shell flower shaped buttons on the four corners.
sooo messy (Sorry Su!), so can't show it to anybody, lol
Thanks for Su, she also didn't show it on her blog, I felt so relief, lol
This time I sew around by sewing machine, but it was a bit rough and messy, so I feel sorry to Su...
I shouldn't have done that, I should had sew by hand...
I have to do more practice for finishing...!
