WOWZERS!

Boy, did I ever get a nice surprise when I landed home today! When I opened the mailbox, there was a box waiting inside and it was addressed to me :o) Upon further inspection, it was from a relative of mine from the USA. I consider her an aunt although that's not how we're related.

She has a love for cross stitch as well but sadly her eyesight does not let her do it anymore. Over the past year, she has been sending me things as she comes across them. This time the box was FULL of little jars!

They're made by Framecraft in the UK. Most of them are ceramic (I think) but there is a cute wooden one as well. As you'll notice, there is a tray in the picture. I got that from her this past summer but never got around to taking a picture. I'm so excited because with all these new items, it will give me different ways to finish my stitching. I think I'm going to have to practice my one over one for the tiniest ones though ;o)

Thank you SO much J!

What a lovely surprise to come home to, the little jars are adorable. It will be fun to find the right design to do for the top of them, I think some of the lovely alphabet motives would be perfect.

Oh you are lucky! Aren't they sweet :o) I stitched a little jar lie that for my mum when I first started stitching. It looked really good.

I've seen the ceramic ones around but never a wooden one. That is cute lol
