I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

From South Africa to Australia

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give
~ George MacDonald ~

Sometime ago I signed up to an exchange the Heather from Heather's Stitching Story was running.  Now I must hang my head in shame at this point because I was almost a month late sending to my partner.... and looking at the tracking website she still doesn't appear to have received the package a month after I posted - the package seems to have arrived in the USA and stopped dead.... fingers crossed it isn't held up too much longer with Customs and the postal service and it is delivered to CJ very soon.....

But I digress - again!

My post today is to show you what I received from my partner in the exchange - Theoria from "My Little Corner of Cyberspace".

Theoria hails from South Africa and she sent me these gorgeous hand-stitched gifts, as well as some chocolates (Lindt... my favourite - they lasted long enough to take the photo!!), some needles, scissors, bookmark, buttons and charms (cute), a notebook and some lovely trim which wrapped the whole package up, and the cutest doggie cross stitch kit!

Thank you Theoria, I just love everything you sent.  The photo doesn't show how pretty the stitched items are - they are just lovely!

I will be back again soon to show you what I sent to CJ and also update you on some other stitching that I am currently doing now that my stitching bug is finally coming home to settle again!!

Til next time, happy stitching!
Hugs, Stitching Noni xx
