Lots to Show and Tell

A surprise box arrived the other day from my dear friend Elisabetta, in Italy.
I opened it and everything was wrapped so pretty.
I just kind of took it all in.  I was so surprised and very excited.  I carefully opened each pretty little package.
Lookie, lookie.....She gifted me an "Old Crow" pinkeep and a wonderful little heart bag with a matching fob floss ring.  Look at the sweet crocheted edging.   Oh my!  She also sent a wooden crow floss holder made by Isobel of The Primitive Hare.  

Gosh, I just love everything Elisabetta and I'm so touched by your thoughtfulness.  I truly appreciate all the time AND stitches that you put into making these beautiful gifts for me.
I will certainly cherish them.  I hope one day I will get to meet you and your lovely family.  Thank you so very much my friend ♥♥♥

Next.....remember the sneak peek I showed you about my new design "Wintertime"?  Well, it's all completed and I just need to do one more check over to make sure everything is correct.  I should be able to post the finish by the end of the week and get it listed in my Etsy Shop. WOOT WOOT!  I really  love how it turned out and hope you will too.

And finally, if any of you follow me on facebook, you know that I've take up riding lessons.
Here's a pic of Sunny and I.
My lessons are every Tuesday morning.  So, I'm off to see my new pal and teacher, Ellen, my buddy, Mimi and of course, Sunny.  Afterwards, us girls are going out for some lunch and I'm sure some laughs.
Be back soon!
Smiles, ~Nan

You're really too kind, I've done everything with pleasure and thinking about your tastes....(see crows). I' m so happy you like everything also the wrapping! ;) The crow bag is a scissor holder is I thought you might put on your neck when you stitch in order not to lose the scissor as I make always!!!! ;)
My younger daughter Matilde want to take riding lessons she will begin soon!!!
