Surprise From Across The Pond!

A few days ago I received a package from a special long distance friend 
from the Netherlands, Chris Jones
A few months ago I sent a little package to her and included a watercolor card I painted of two ladies, Chris and Carolyn!
Here we, are as if together, enjoying our wonderful friendship!

In the package was a precious applique little quilt "Chris" created as a reminder of the watercolor card I painted for her. 
Every stitch is full of perfection and detail! 

Attached, on the backside of the quilt is a special label she created! 

The three little buttons came from old sewing pieces of fabric from around 1920 that her mother made at the Industrial School (a kind of housekeeping school). The little pieces of tatting and lace are also from that time. 
Thank you "Chris" for the special quilt which I will treasure with along our special long distance friendship xoxo!

It all started with our International Siggy Swap in 2010
hosted by Marga Pieper. I created a link to her site.

Hugs, Carolyn
