Gifts for a special friend.

Its my second post this weekend as I wanted to show you the goodies I made for my friend in Winchester who I am going to visit on Tuesday.
My friend is a Quilter who has been so busy with house renovation and work that she hasn't done any stitching. I put together a little book with the hope of inspiring her.
I've put a few goodies inside that I think will be useful. A tape measure, a pack of quilting needles, a notebook for jotting down ideas and instructions for the clam shell piecing she liked so much at the exhibition at the V&A in London.
Finally a couple of piece of fabric to stitch!

My friends Mum has been under the weather since being stuck in her car for several hours in
last winters snow, she has been not feeling herself for a long time. She is a talented embroiderer so I made her a book too,




I hope these little books will cheer them up, I spent a couple of pleasant
hours making them and I'm really looking forward to my day out!!
