My Tilda Swap Arrived!

I belong to a lovely group of ladies in an online friends group. Our latest swap was Tilda themed and as I had been away my partner.....gorgeous Barb held on to mine until I returned.
The postie bought it today!!!
A beautiful doll dressed in pretty Tilda fabric with her very own piece of barb's lovely crochet work.
Isn't she lovely! She told me she wanted to sit on my rocking chair. I also received other lovely goodies too.
A very pretty journal ( you know how I love a new journal) cute Tilda buttons and lovely soap.
My sweet tooth is also very happy.....
Could I perhaps persuade you that they are still in pristine condition? No? I didn't think so! Of course not I have had a bit of a sample already.
Thank you dear Barb for spoiling me so and being patient and holding on until I returned home xxx
Today is a special day for Mr R. and myself as today is our Wedding Anniversary.
Unfortunately my Mister has a severe case of flu so not much of a celebration happening. But at least we got to spend the day together.... We are extremely grateful to have found each other so early and still have each other. Do you know why I love these?
Because I carried them in my Wedding bouquet and they graced the top of our cake.
On the stitching front I am afraid it is more hand quilting.....
I love this little cutie too!
Enjoy your evening,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  4. So glad you loved what I made/sent for this swap and to keep her out of reach from those fast moving grand daughters she has a loop at the back of her neck so she can be hung up out of reach if needed. This was such a fun swap and I love being part of this special group of ladies :) Barb.
