Gifts in the Post

October 17, 2010

Last week I received a lovely package in the post from Christchurch, from which I made these darling little shoes.

A lovely lady Kath, had read the article in the Herald and seen some of my work online. She contacted me to donate a bunch of her late great aunt's embroideries as they "were just taking up space in the cupboards!"

What a treat! So many lovely things to make into special little shoes.

After chatting for a wee while online, it turns out she is heading over to London shortly to welcome a new grand-baby. I decided to make her a special little pair of reversible newborn shoes from some of her own embroideries to say thanks and repay her kindness.

I made another identical pair from the remaining 2 napkins which are available here.

I can't wait to get stuck in and make some pretty things from these lovely pieces. I was thinking I might make some needle cases featuring the embroidery on the front, some Christmas ornaments and other pretty little gift ideas ready for Christmas gift giving.

Thanks Kath, your package was received with such delight!
