All by myself- for you to see

Well I think this deserves a post all to itself. I had a package from Dear Sally this morning, I had sent her another SB kit (well got to keep her busy) lol. Anyway this morning," as a thankyou", she said and for our friendship, she sent me this.
Gulping here!!


I could not believe my eyes when I saw this gorgeous box that Sally had painted and then mounted her beautiful stitching on. Upon opening, it was not all ,inside was the little cushion that matched it. I know it is out of the Stitchers Journey book and thought you may like to see it against the original.

Isn't it just perfect,Sally knows my tastes so well,and I have a little Sallys basket with all the little gifties she has sent me since knowing her which sits at my bedside. This will not go in there it will sit beside the stitching chair. I know you would like to see inside so here you go,

I am just blown away by this (can you tell) and would like to say a big THANKYOU Sally, you are the best!!
I did try and take a closer one so on that note ,I will be back in a few days with an update.Just had to post this though.

Take care all and hugs n stuff from me
