Vonna, you have outdone yourself this time!
I had the good fortune of having Vonna as a partner on the Stitching Bloggers "Potting Shed Exchange" (garden theme) and Vonna stitched a cheerful Waxing Moon design called "Love builds a garden" and finished it as a picket fence standup display. Vonna I am dying to know if you created this little fence all by yourself... it is so perfectly matched to the cross stitch design that I think you must have! The colors and shape of the flowers, even the little fence, all suit the stitching so well. Your finishing creativity is absolutely amazing. I have placed it with my plants in the window where I think it looks quite at home.
She also treated me to some garden goodies -- soft pink garden gloves and matching trowel, a cute little ladybug ornament and some mini terra cotta pots to grow daisies and marigolds.
Vonna, big hugs to you. I was having a really "down" day yesterday and when I stepped outside my apartment door to discover your HUGE package, it really brightened my spirits! Thank you, my friend! I know this was a labor of love, and it has truly blessed me.
