An unexpected suprise in my mailbox ......

.... Margaret from the Crazy Exchange Group send me this beautiful needle-case, siccor-fob and some lovely other gifts. I don't know much about stitching, but she gave an explanation. The stitching is Wessex Stitchery, wich was revived from Britain (Victorian period) by a New-Zeland embroiderer. For the colours she choose the NZ Paua Shell, a shell fish that grows on their rocky coast. Isn't it a very special and lovely gift.
