My fabulous package arrived today from madcrafter.
She posted it on 22 November and the notification arrived yesterday - so I guess airmail isn't what it used to be
But it was truly worth waiting for. She made patches on my theme of sunsets and had the most beautiful fabrics and embroidery.
I love this one with its fire at sunset. The fabric just brilliantly evokes a bush fire and the chenille stitched sun is glorious.
The other patch she sent is this beautiful Van Gogh style sunset in chainstitch. I am so in love with the colours and the way the stitches flow around the sun and across the sky.
She also sent me one of her stunning paper cuts.
I am so thrilled with this and love all the little details that I keep finding the more I look at it - like the cats on the fence and the rabbits in the grass.
And as if all this wasn't enough she also sent me a wonderful patch making kit with fabrics in my favourite colours and needles and threads and beads. I'm particularly intrigued by the unusual threads as I can't find that sort of thing here and I'm really looking forward to using them
Altogether a fantastic Christmas present. Thank you so much madcrafter. Definitely worth the wait.
