Quaker Animal Exchange FROM Edgar

Yesterday, I've received an amazing parcel from Edgar!
It has reached to Japan safely and it took only 5 or 6 days to get here.
I was so thrilled to open his parcel because I know his works are wonderful!

Here are the gifts from him!

This Exchange is with Quaker Inspired "The Workbasket Quaker Animal Exchange", and we could choose and stitch one of Animal from The Workbasket's Quaker Animal charts, and he stitched "Quaker Rooseter" for me and made it into "Pyn Keepe" (which is what he calls about Pinkeep).

How gorgeous is this!
His stitching is amazingly beautiful!!
He stitched Rooster by Belle Soie "Creme de Menthe" silk thread and stitched my initials by Cresent Clours!
Oh I do really love this Pyn Keepe! Beautiful indeed!

I also love the trim (braid) colour so much, it very suits for these threads' colour, don't you think?

And the pearl pins are very beautiful on this masterd colour trim!
I love how he added pins, I will refer it from the next time I make pinkeep!

And I shouldn't forget about this lovely backing fabric to share!
Isn't it SO cute?! And it matches perfect to this Rooster design!

He totally spoiled me, so much!
He included two charts of "The Sampler Girl" which was on my wishlist, some Vikki Clayton's Silk threads, my favourite cherry tea (he told me that he knew that it's my favourite from my past post! How thoughtfull gift is this!), and very nice scent body lotion!

I'm so glad that he sent me all my favourite stuffs!
What sweet presents!

Thank you SO SO SO much, Edgar!
I'd really appreciate for your wonderful Pyn Keepe and so many goodies!
And of course for your kind heart!
