What can you say when you receive something as wonderful as this?

I arrived back here in Coventry quite down having left my beautiful house in Essex, where you can sit in the garden and you can't see anyone else's washing, where you're not squashed in a row of houses all the same... where it is bright inside the house and a pleasant aspect out of your front and here was my post!

I was so amazed and delighted, wow my pressie from Robyn in Australia, what could it be?

And wow!All beautifully wrapped with bows and ribbon

I am completely over awed and haven't done it justice with my photos. The stitching is amazing and it has pockets and beads and lace and even pockets inside.
The quilting is fantastic, Robyn you are so clever and I can't say thank you enough. I never expected anything like this, the cross stitch chart will be a pleasure to stitch and those chocs... Roses!! yes definitely garden-ey
Thank you Robyn so much I shall be taking it every where I go to show to people and of course I shall pass on the PIF
How ever I can't match such a gift and mine will be some thing cross stitched

So sign up for my PIF and expect a stitchy some thing from me with in the next 12 months.Although I have to admit I will not be able to match Robyn's beautiful gift.#
Thank you and thank you again Robyn
