We had a rather stressful time last week so getting a parcel from my friend Beverly really cheered me up. It had taken the long way round to get over the pond, over a month!

Inside was this gorgeous Stitchery Keep from Olde Colonial Designs

a lovely gift from Beverly - it must have taken the pretty route to take so long to get to you. It's such a worry when packages of precious stitching take so long to arrive.
