Show and Tell

As promised yesterday a very pretty show and tell from my friend Monica. This gorgeous box is a gift for someone very special.
It is a beautiful Faeries in my Garden pattern. Monica is an exquisite embroiderer and this is completely hand sewn. The embroidery is all worked in one strand of thread......oh my! So beautiful!
There is also a very special label inside worked by 3 generations....Great Grandmother, Grandmother and Mother.....such a treasure!
It never ceases to amaze me, the beauty a needle and thread and a clever needle woman can create. Thank you so much Monica for allowing me to share your exquisite work. You know where I live so just pop it on the doorstop...that will be fine lol! I know its true recipient will adore it xx
Bit of art from me to finish.....
I seem to be stuck in branches with little birdies at the moment. Loved drawing this beautiful creature. Loten's Purple Sunbird. Unfortunately I couldn't quite get the hint of purple iridescence with my pencils but I am happy with it.

Short and sweet today.
Enjoy your day.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
