yesterday afternoon the postie came...
with a delightful package from my good friend debbie
i was being a bit cheeky at christmas...
when i sent my cards out,
i gave all my friends my blog address.
not hearing anything back
i just assumed my friends weren't interested
and had binned it.
well, it turned out that deb didn't..
and she made a georgeous cushion
for all our queensland friends affected by the floods.
i don't think she'll ever know how much this touched my heart...
you're the best!
doesn't it look striking 'on the black couch'...
those juicy red cherries, little cream flowers and emerald leaves
all edged with gold on a navy background.
this view of the front
shows the border sewn in around the cushion...
a lovely tailored looking finish.
a green buttoned up back...
those red flower buttons needed another photo...
aren't those buttons pretty....
times like these i wish i had one of those specialty lenses
that take close up pics beautifully..
but this will have to do!
to finish up i just had to show you the back detail
in the corner...
isn't it sweet?
well that was a surprise of the best kind...
it made my day yesterday
after all that bad news from nz
this warmed my heart!
friends have that kind of effect
hoping you're enjoying your friends today...
