Remember


Do you remember my SAL last year? Well I started it on a linen that I didn't enjoy working on Soooo.... I stopped and Dani found me a wonderful piece of Lugana that worked much better.

I mentioned it to the ladies at my Thursday stitching group and told them I was going to make the small section into a Bookmark. I thought that was a good Idea.
Marie-Paule....one of the ladies called me at 8 am the next day and said she didn't sleep all night thinking about me cutting up my fabric, Oh dear I felt so bad.
She asked me not to cut it and to bring it to her. She was going to do something with it for me.
She has a sewing machine that does amazing designs and yes this is one of them.
After Christmas she told me she had a Christmas card for me and this was it.
IT IS GORGEOUS!
She made this cushion for me and I LOVE it!!!!
She even added some hand sewn beads and some embellishment in the bow.
You are an amazing lady Marie-Paule...Thank you so much.

I'm sorry to say she does not have a blog but she has a wonderful ability to make things beautiful.
Moonlight Guardian has since then been finished and is at the framer getting a nice frame.

Off to stitch on my Mirabilia now,
Stitch with happy fingers

What an awesome pillow, it looks wonderful. That's great that she could make it into that for you, how creative. Guardian turned out fantastic, I can't wait to see how you've decided to frame him. Saw in your earlier post you've picked up the new Ink Circles design. That one is so neat, it is on my wish list as well.

Marie Paul is a wonder with that machine! The two snowmen she made for my boys are still waiting for me to stitch their names on them...maybe that is a good thing to do this snowy Sunday afternoon!
Beautiful...I think we are all lucky to call Marie Paul a friend.
