Belated Birthday Present FROM Carol R. AND "Noel"

Hi, the other day I safely arrived a parcel from Carol R. in the UK.
I've heard that she sent me a parcel, so I was looking for the one I receive!
As always there were parcel for my son Tass and for me which was beautifully wrapped with tissue paper.

In there, there were so many goodies and most beautiful thing like above photo!
She gathered pink based things for me as I like pink, and very delicate pinkeep was there...
I was overwhelmed and had very big sigh...

Look at this, as you already know her works are always so delicate and neat, I was very touched by her work this time, too!

Back of the pinkeep, she stitched my initials and also 2009!
Can you see wee heart button? Isn't it pretty?!
She tied ribbon at four corners and they make this pinkeep more lovelier!

She told me this was her first time try, though she sew both sides of stitched piece with silk ribbon!

How beautiful is this, I can't believe it was her first try and this is so great idea!!
Thank you so much Carol for your warm heart always.
I really appreciate for your kindness and am honored to being your friend!

Carol presented Sweetie a red toy MINI, though he doesn't let me take a photo, lol
He has so many MINIs which was presented by Auntie Carol!
So later if I could take a photo of it, I will post the photo. :)

Here is a piece that I was stitching lately.
I was losting "mojo", and so I couldn't or didn't stitch much at all lately...

And finally I finished this for Christmas...
Today is my mum's Birthday, so I want to try to finish finishing this and present this to her if I could!

My "mojo" is backing a little by little...
When Carol and I were chatting a few days ago, she cheerd me up and take my mojo back!
I really want to stitch her "Sew Noel" with Silk, though now I have terrbile stiff neck and headache, so hope it will disapear and stitch it a little by little!!

Thanks Carol, hope chatting with you later!

I wish you very merry Christmas!!!
Thank you for your visit.
