Giving

I love to give and when I finished my portions of the joint quilt I am making with my friend in Canada, it was great fun thinking how I would wrap and send them:

So each 12 inch patchwork square was folded up neatly and tied with a tag, uniquely stamped and decorated and then put into a C5 envelope which was also stamped.  I then posted these so that my friend would get them one day at a time and amazingly it worked!!

Recently we have had a number of visitors, one of whom was my penfriend from France and we had fun celebrating many years of knowing one another.  She loves La Source from Crabtree and Evelyn and as I had some of this given to me while staying in a hotel, I decided I wanted to share it with her but by this time she was back in France.  So a little parcel was made up using voile fabric, stamped with my script stamp and tied with lace and a stamped tag.  She loved it!
