Pretty gifts

This week I was the recipient of gifts from 2 wonderful friends.
These lovely towels came all the way from Holland.
Carolien added some of my favorite treat that is called Anijsblokjes...hm you add it to warm milk.Yummm.
I can't always get it here in Canada.
She added a lovley set of towels for my Mom and Some dark Dutch Chocolate. We are so spoiled .
Thank you so much Dear lady!!!!




 And here I have a gift from Fran...She made these beautiful pillow cases and used her amazing talent with her embriodery machine and added these pretty violets. The colours are the colour of my bedroom so I'm trilled with them.
Thank You so much Fran.What a special thing to do for me my friend.





                                           On Thursday  our church choir sang for the confirmation of 46 young people  and 6 adults It was a lovely ceremony with the Arch Bishop and a church full of family and friends..I only know the folks through the church, No family...but it was moving.




Last but not least I have been stitching on a UFO..I found it in the bottom of my bag and am planning to finish it. It is so pretty...I did start a new piece but not much on it yet....next post I'll show it to you.

                                                   Ink Circles...Cirque de Cirque


Stitch with happy fingers!!
