surprise!


It was such a lovely surprise to come home from the cabin to an 'un-birthday' gift from Claire .   The DMC thread is 'colour variations' and this is the first time I've been able to see this thread in person - the shade changes are ever so gentle - I'm anxious to get stitching.  Doesn't that monster pouch just make you smile!  I'm fond of Robbie Burns - must be my Scottish background - I was delighted to have this lovely card. 
Thank you Claire for your kindness and friendship.

I've got Scottish blood in my background too, from one grandfather. And English blood from the other Granddad. Both sadly long gone now.

Those threads look interesting Kate... I love variegated threads, but have yet to find one I really like...
