Victorian footed pin cushion, tassel fob and a Pin Whimsy
made buy Lee
Last week was my birthday. I had received a package from New Zealand 4 days before my actual birthday. I was a good girl and didn't open it till the morning of my birthday. And let me tell you I'm so glad I waited - what amazing treasures I received from Lee - Notes from under the Mountain blog.
Each of these spectacular stitcher's accessories, that she stitched, were individually wrapped all in one box. I took my time as I opened each one. I opened the Victorian footed pin cushion first. When I unwrapped it and had seen what Lee made for me - I was in AWE - completely speechless. It was like time totally slowed down for me. It took me about 25 -35 minutes opening her gifts - all that came in one small box. I just couldn't believe every one was for me.

How Lee stitched (and I don't see the stitches anywhere on this) the trim on is a MYSTERY to me.
Can you see the perfectly thread covered beads on the bottom?
Lee's blog - Please do so. Lee posted and explains & describes each of the pieces she made for me.
Oh my goodness last week was a emotional roller coaster for me. It was my first birthday without my mom. I didn't know what to expect and sure enough it was hard. I did not want or had any party. Just couldn't celebrate like that. But I know that mom would of have said "Each birthday is a blessing".
I have been stitching just about every day. I've been working on a project for Lee's up coming birthday:))) And I have more to share with you regarding what I bought with some of my birthday money - Stitching stuff of course. I sure hope I've done some justice photographing what Lee made for me. So many details that I had to include many photos of her remarkable craftsmanship.
Thank you all for visiting. Much love and always with appreciation - Annette
