Aaah, such beauty!

When we got back from France last week, my son handed me a package. A package from Australia! That could only mean that this was a gift from my very dear friend Suzy, from Suziqu's Threadworks. I didn't open it that evening, as we had too much unpacking etc to do, but there was no way I could wait until my birthday. So the next morning I did the naughty deed, lol. You all know Suzy's incredible work, so you can imagine how excited I was. I was pretty much speechless then, and I am not going to say much now either, I'll let the photos speak for themselves -

The tag, which was the first thing I saw -



The beautiful clutch, so perfect for little keepsakes -



Hidden away in the clutch were these two gorgeous pieces -

This beautiful quilted piece with locks from her 'girls', lace, ribbons -



I am a very lucky girl to be the recipient of such beautiful gifts. I was over the moon with them.

But...

that wasn't all.

There was also this -







Even the back of the heart is so beautifully finished -

I can't tell you in words how much these exquisite pieces mean to me. I can feel the friendship and love which have gone into making them and I feel as if Suzy is right here by my side when I hold these treasures in my hands. I am truly blessed to be able to call her my friend.

It has been over week since I opened the package and I only just managed to take some photographs. Why? I did my back in last Wednesday, no idea how, but it had crippled me for a week, I could hardly move. I can get around again, but can't sit for very long, so computer time is very limited. Still, the sun is shining, Spring has sprung and life is good.

I wish you all beautiful Spring/Autumn days, toodlepip xxx
