Mail

After a harrowing day yesterday spent in Toowoomba at a friends son's funeral it was so nice to come home to a parcel in the mail. Upon opening i discovered this oh so gorgeous sewing roll. This is the first swap in our online sewing group Let's Stitch Together.
As i was investigating things i discovered a teabag in the front pocket. :)
& surprises inside as well. Thankyou so much Kerrie. I love the sewing roll so much.

 I had planned to take part in FNWF's but i was so tired & my eyes were sore from crying so i have nothing to show for last night.

Happy Stitching,

Your new sewing roll from Kerrie is really lovely. Sounds like Friday was a really tough day all round. It's no wonder you didn't feel like sewing. Hugs...

What a beautiful sewing book. I like the tea bag pouch. Funerals are so sad but I am sure your friend appreciated your support.
