Sweet Mail and Stitching

As you all know I am a huge fan of the exquisite artwork of Beatrix Potter. I recently received the sweetest card from Sue a lovely lady in the UK who is about to start stitching "Down Reindeer Lane".
The card is a special notelet of a previously unpublished  1890's greeting card.
Isn't it just gorgeous...such a well turned out Bunny!
I shall treasure it Sue. Thank you so much. I just love a beautiful card! Do you love a nice card too?
On the sewing front I have started a little spot of redwork...
Can't see what I am stitching? Oh good because it is a secret...ssshhh!
I have also spent a bit of time sitting here....
and I am so excited to be finally quilting on the bottom half of my secret  long term project.
 I hope if you are somewhere chilly you are cosy and if you are having Summer you are nice and cool.
Ok Coffee Time!
Take care until next time.


Namaste and Blessings
