Ondrea, a very special friend!

DSCF8211

Every year for our Birthdays and for Christmas we send a little gift off to each other and this year this is what Ondrea sent to me, totally spoilt again this year! A beautifully soft knitted face washer with some lovely smelling soap wrapped up inside it. A lovely snowman button by Barb Smith my all time favourite character for Christmas with Santa a close second lol. A beautiful hand stitched hexie pin cushion and some yummy snowball choccies which I have to admit eating one or two or three of them by now hehehehe…..

Here is a close up of the pin cushion, Ondrea is such a neat and tiny stitcher….just gorgeous! Thanks Ondrea I look forward to hopefully seeing you face to face sometime this year if all goes to plan and then I can give you a great big hug but until then here’s a big cyber one heading your way (((((((HUG)))))))

These are what I sent to Ondrea, I didn’t send her any choccies as I know there are certain things she can’t eat so I didn’t want to tempt her…..I started working on cross stitch again this year after not doing it for over ten years but the bug has bitten me again so you just may see more of these popping up again next year in different forms. I know Ondrea loves purple so I used a cottage garden thread to work with on her Paris themed cross stitch and included an owl note book and owl ornament as I know Ondrea loves owls and I couldn’t resist either of them when I spotted them earlier in the year.

Thanks Ondrea for being such a special friend and I hope you had a lovely Christmas XXXXX Smile
