happy valentine's day
happy friends day
teje from 'nero's post and patch'
sent me some beautifully made cushions
from chania in greece...
i pinched this photo from her blog
so you can see what a beautiful place
she comes from.
here is her lovely work...'on the black couch',
i've called this one 'summer patch'
because it reminds me of summer days..
long drinks, sand, sea and shady green trees.
this one i've called 'purple patch'...
subdued colours..moody with subtle stitched vines
and floral flashes of colour...georgeous!
and this one i've called 'golden harvest'
rows of wheaten gold with a little lilac blue leaf...
neatly top stitched...
and buttoned up at the back.
this is my favourite!
these will be a great blessing to the flood affected families who receive them;
thank you teje!!
she also popped in a present for me...yay!
teje is very artistic and makes amazing woollen felt pictures
i am using this to wrap up a vase...
the felt is so light and warm...
and the colours she has chosen will enhance any flowers i put in there...
in front is the glass koru my brother gave us for christmas,
isn't the shape beautiful?
love comes in many guises...
friendship and kindness among them.
lovers and friends...
i'm hoping you have both
and are feeling very loved today...
