Look What Arrived From France!

I am so excited, dear friend, to share with you my final Blackbird Designs exchange gift, which arrived yesterday afternoon all the way from Lyon, France!

BBD "Gathering Basket"

A Gift Exchange from Ela

In Lyon, France

This Pinkeep is so gorgeous, that my pictures barely do it justice.

It was stitched by our dear stitchy friend, Elisabeth, on 32 ct Zweigart flax linen, using CC threads, and I just adore it. She is not only an amazing stitcher, but her finishing is gorgeous and beyond perfect! 

I love love love it!
I have not stopped smiling since I opened it late last night.

Merci Beaucoup, Ela...Kiss kiss kiss!

Hugs
