A week ago, I recieved a wonderfull packet from Diane.
I knew it was our swap pincussion, and opened with big joy, because I know having
post from this dear lady ,is alwayes a very wonderfull experience.
Now my friend is back home from her trip, and I see she posted ,what she recieved from me-
so please laydies  just take a look here!!!

See how beautifull she packed this , with romantic ribbons and flowers.

And there is alwayes the most beautifull tags, from Diane-isn`t the motif wonderfull?

And sooo pretti stamped tags on every little back, with lots of great
art materials to play with.

See here--the stamped ribbon in the left  is so lovely, -stamped in brown,on the most beautifull rosecovered
pink fabric piece-and the silk ribbon rolled around a sweet beautifull
rose-tag--- I adore it all.

But what you are all waiting to see --the pincussion-is the most beautifull work,of art.
See how Diane hand-embroidered this sweet thing, all over the top.(PLEASE CLICK THE PHOTO TO SEE THE DETAIELS)
----small flowers at the cheesecloth, and the tinyest pearls, on the old handmade lace.----
It is so beautifully made dearest, -and you are a precius friend, whom I admire,in every way,
-- as woman, and artist--and yes I`m so very happy we met here, as everything else, as you say-will be impossibly.
Thankyou so much for this gorgeus swap packet, dearest.

I have to show you one more thing from the packet-----I could not resist this sweet wonderfull
mini pillow, when seing it in Diane`s shop,--and therefore bought it.
It is now standing on the back of my couch, in the sitting room, with its friend from home- another fantastic pillow made by Diane.It is the most cute pillow, ever- with the eggs in the nest-and the bird parents waiting on the branches!!!!  LOVE IT, TOO , sweet Diane. 

Hugs and love, to new-and old friends all over the world,
I`m so happy for all of you following me, and everyone commenting here.
XO Dorthe

Diane said...

Dorthe, that pin cushion is exquisite. You can see that Diane enjoys very much what she does--it shows in all of her details--everything is perfect!

Lululiz said...

Just like you, Diane is a wonderful artist and one of the loveliest people I have met in blogland. You two have had a beautiful swap. I have seen Diane's post as well, and I wouldn't be able to favour one swap package over the other. Both are just delightful. I also really love the cushion you bought, it is such a sweet thing.

Jane said...

What a fun swap and the pincushion you received is simply gorgeous. It's so nice to connect with so many bloggers around the world.

My dear friend, I felt so excited to receive my package when I returned from Chicago! Again, I have to tell you how honored I felt that you asked me to swap with you. I hung the pincushion on the wall right where I craft. :-) It's so beautiful!
I love the display on your wall in the photo. Are they all embroideries? I do see that the heart is made from buttons...This little peek inside your home speaks of much warmth and coziness. I'm glad my little creations have found a good home in which to rest with a dear, sweet lady.
Blessings, love and hugs,

Lovey said...

I adore you both! Awesome gifts from and to you! Hugs!!!
