My package from Troublet!  So perfectly tailored to my likes, wishes, tastes!  She spent so much time and effort on my items, and it really shows.  I'm blown away!  Now, to the goodies....



First, a bottlecap pincushion in my favorite colors and in one of my most favorite themes!  Lovely design and stitching....



A bandana for me to wear (I don't know how you knew I wear these!!!). . . .


...with this!  I LOOOVE aprons!  Embroidered pockets!! The fabric is one of my faves, too (Alexander Henry). . . .


...which she sent me lots of!  Yay, fabric addiction!  Cheesy


And the most special piece, and my favorite -- this lovely embroidered art piece of the Virgin:


I'm so blown away by your skills, Troublet -- and patience.  Check out the metallic work!  This stuff is NOT easy to work with, and you did an amazing job.




I can't forget the sweet extra she included -- a calendar!  And I totally needed one for my office.... it's perfect!


Thank you SOOOO much, Troublet, for such an awesomely thoughtful package.  I really do love everything, and I appreciate all the thought and crafty love you put into each item.  I am so lucky to be your partner!   Kiss

YAY! I was worried that the flowers on the framed piece wouldn't survive the post.

Your package came so easily to me. I knew what I wanted to make for you and exactly how I wanted it to turn out. Crafting for you was sheer joy. Cheesy
