Today I received a package with my pillows I won in the auction. I was so excited I won them as my daughter Maggie has their bedroom done in Asian style and the pillows will be perfect with the comforter I gave them 2 years ago. That was a treat itself from Lisa over at http://handofenchantment.blogspot.com/ as she paid the shipping and donated the pillows. But Lisa then did something that brought tears to my eyes. People this busy lady HANDSTITCHED a small wall hanging just for me! Not only did she handstitch a wallhanging, she took the time to use material that matched my decor and my life! The background is beautiful chickens and even look like some of mine! She handstitched a country angel (she must have read I collect country angels). But not only is this a country angel, the angel has a apron on with hidden haven written across the bottom. Not only does it have hidden haven written across the bottom it has a pocket handstitched on it. And the pocket has a photo of Miss Diva on it!!!! And not only does the pocket have Miss Diva on it ..... it has a tiny little bar of homemade soap in the pocket!! The wallhanging has its own little branch to hang from and is absolutely beautiful! Lisa this will be the first thing I hang in the bathroom when its finished! It will hang beside my mother's antique mirror so I will see my special angel every day. Thank you so much! This gift touched me so much. You took so much time to sew each piece and to pick items that were special just for me. I will treasure my angel forever! Click on photo to enlarge.
