When I made a post in beginning of June about playing with small scraps resulting in a pile of blue and cream star blocks, I received this lovely e-mail from a dear friend of mine accross the pond:
Hello friend, over there, around the world....Who am I to say no to such a sweet offer? Coming home last night I found a parcel in my mail box - opening it I found these:
I was looking around today, and was just inspired by your blog. You have been playing with some blue HSTs and wondering what you will set them with. What came to mind for me were snowball blocks with your blues. I would like to create some embroidered blocks for you with my machine! I have some cute snowmen that would look nice, or perhaps you could give me some direction. I have many designs and I need something to get my creativity going again [...]
Aren't they cute? So many charming faces, snowmen, snow-women, snow-cats, reindeer with heaps of charm :o) The two cats are in honor of their two family cats, Isabelle and Maestro
And look, one of the snowladies is carrying a bag with a Friendship "F"!
Thank you so much, Shelley!!! I had a bit of a play today, and layed out your embroidered blocks along side my pieced stars
Looks great, doesn't it :o) Now I'm going to have heaps of fun stitching quick corners on those blocks, making snowballs!
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida
