Posties have been busy delivering from France to . . . France, the UK, the USA and Canada this month, as I continue to send out surprise mail and celebrate some un-birthdays.
For October, I had lots of fun with some Kaffe Fassett fabric, and made a batch of bookmarks. I love these rich colours – I hope the recipients do too. Fabric ironed onto inter-facing, then stitched to a co-ordinating piece of felt and some ribbon added.
These are the 5 different surprises that went out this month. A little cross stitch kit: “cuppa tea” and bookmark for Simply Vanella, although I don’t know if she actually cross stitches. I do know she loves a nice cup of tea, so maybe this little kit will inspire her to try her hand at some xstitching. Then for ‘Titia, Nic, Alison and Isabel (all ladies who cross stitch and read ^^) a home-made needle book (complete with 3 John James needles: size 24, 26 & 28) and a Kaffe Fassett fabric bookmark each.
