Pat Makes My Day ......Again :)

I had just come home from work and made a cup of hot tea when I heard that familar "THUMP" at my door. Yippee ~ the mailman had come ~ and just look what he brought! An amazing herloom handstitched by Pat Winter. She was ever so sneeky and looked at my kitchen pic's to include all my colors. It touches every heartstring ~ though I've had it for 2 weeks I keep finding new surprises. Most times it makes me smile ~ sometimes it makes me cry that someone would care so much as to take the time to do this for me. Life can do a fairly good job at knocking us around but this sweet little tea cozy has served as a "battery charger" for my heart these last few week's. Thanks Dear Friend! (see better pic's of this treasure on Pat's blog ~ just scroll down a little)

I am so glad it matched and that you are enjoying it. When you start a project with someone special in mind, ever stitch is exciting,every embellishment fun to discover. I had fun making this and it went so quickly I was disappointed when it was finished.
Enjoy you tea and escape the world whenever possible.
