Last Thursday my parents returned from their seven week European holiday. I had asked my mother that if they happened past any needlework shops that if she could buy me a few bits and pieces. Well I have to say this is so much more than I expected. She thought to buy extra as a nice early birthday present.
Some thimbles to add to my growing collection.
Some 45ct Graziano linen and a beautiful bag to carry all my needlework. A few Italian cross stitch magazines
Great buttons, a lovely pair of larger scissors from Germany, ribbons from Austria.
My parents specially sought out Des Fils Et Une Aiguille whilst in Paris and purchased this great haul.
The charts are from Lili Points and are some Christmas designs. DMC stitching accessories, eight different pieces of linen and a spool of Soie Surfine thread.
Look at the beautiful ribbons.
Decorative pins by the French designer Butterfly Couture.
Some Kelmscott owl scissors and thread keep, mother of peal buttons and an Eiffel Tower charm the owner gave as a gift.
To say that I have been spoilt is an understatement. It's not often that anyone in my family purchases me anything for my stitching, but when they do, they don't do half measures.
