2 Little finishes and another gift.

Hello from me on a Wednesday afternoon. I am feeling much better ,not right but much better,thanks for all the wishes for Martin and I.
I have been doing a little stitching and got 2 littles done. The first one is one I saw on Lynn Bs Happiness is cross stitching blog. Here it is ready for St. Patricks day. I could not resist this one when I saw it and thought yes that will go with the March wordplay.Here it is finished.
Thanks Lynn if you read this. The back is just black and white.
The next one I have done is by JBW designs and is French Country Angel, done in 550 dmc . I found some little cherubs in a box and thought I would add them.



 
This is the back , this is the monthly ornament for Needlecraft Haven. So now I have to think of
what to do for April.
 
 
So that is my 2 little finishes. Now onto the gift ,a person (my birthday twin and fellow Janeite ) sent me a package and oh I was just so delighted with this sweet little addition to my Jane shrine




 
Is that not the sweetest thing, the ribbon she used is absolutely perfect and I would really like some in
my ribbon box,if anyone knows of where both Angela and I could get some please let us know.

This was the rest of the package, Iloved it all Angela, I now have a house to build, and a Jane peg doll to make. Angela visited Chawton where Jane lived and wrote 6 of her novels. How about those sheep too. The one at the back reminds me of the goats in the sound of music, just make me smile. So my thanks to you my friend .
Well folks thats it for this week, I stitched with Sally on my Sheep Virtues on Monday and tonight I shall be over in the parlour starting my Tea Room so if you are passing please pop in and we can share tea and maybe cake. Thanks for all your continued comments and friendship. Take care and I shall catch up again soon .
Hugs and love
Barb.

Nice to hear you are feeling better!

You have done some lovely finishes, I am so glad you told me you had finished my Black Cat design, it looks lovely and I love the little trims you placed at the bottom.
I would love to post this on my blog if you give permission. I have also finished some matching gift tags for this, they are not on my blog yet but let me know if you want them and I will send them to you.

Best wishes

Super gift from Angela, how exciting to be making a peg doll, looking forward to seeing how she turns out.

Great little ornament for the ornament a month, mines sitting all kitted up on the table, my brain thinks i have ages yet this month to get it stitched and made up... mmm... me thinks it will be another last minute one if i carry on like that lol.

Cute kitty, but i am biased being a cat lover.

Great news you are both feeling much better. xxx

Barb,
I'm so glad to hear that you and Martin are better. Your finishes are lovely especially Lynn's lovely little black cat design.
Good to hear that my package arrived safely and you like the JA and sheepie goodies. You're no trouble at all to find gifts for, anything to do with Jane and sheep will always find a good home with you....haha!
I do so wish I could remember where I bought that pretty frilly ribbon!!
Angela :-)
