Gift from across the pond................

Newsflash:  A lovely and unexpected handcrafted gift arrived from the UK just as I was leaving on a recent vacation trip - this is my first chance to share it with you.

The quilted cushion cover with the buttons was made by blog friend Anne at Silver Sewer.  She and her husband recently moved from the north of England to live in Scotland again.  Anne gets more done in a day than many of us do in a week!  I always enjoy reading her daily online journal complete with what's growing in her garden, cooking in her kitchen, and interesting places she visits in the northern British Isles.

Anne's cushion, hugged up to this toile one I made, makes a great pair, both in pale gold and French blue-gray....I just love them together.
Thanks for the really sweet surprise Anne.


  1. What a lovely surprise - and double the pleasure when it goes so well with what you already enjoy.

  2. How lovely, what a nice lady!
    You can never have too many cushions and these two go so well together.

  3. What a lovely girt Mary!
    I love the toile one you made it is just gorgerous! I'm a big fan of toile!

  6. They do look great together. What a lovely gift.

  7. Mary, what a lovely gift. It's perfect with the toile pillow. ~ Sarah

  8. That is absolutely beautiful Mary, both of them, and they do make a perfect pair!
    Take Care!


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
