I have been wanting to show you these all of last week.
And for once I am not giving you the usual excuse of procrastination. It’s the internet connection that failed me this time! And while Sanae of the lovely sanaeishida.com has already posted over her blog the incredible things she made and sent me, she has been too shy (I think) to actually show everything that she included in the Secret Valentine exchange gift.
And, so not only did I get this beautiful cloth bag and a handmade potholder (put to immediate use as you can see)…
I also got to handmade zippered pouches, one of which has been taken over by Ms. N at the moment for her little puppets.
And, as if that was not enough, there were still more yummy goodies packed into the package!
I am told that Merchant & Mills’ products are fantastic and I cannot wait to use it! One of the bookmarks is already in the book by my bedside and it’s so nice to see it everyday as I open my book to read.
When I signed up for Secret Valentine Exchange a couple of weeks ago, planned and executed by two talented seamstresses, Sanae and Ute, I don’t think I had any idea about how much fun this would be, both the making and the giving.
This has been really a treat. I am truly touched Sanae, by your thoughtfulness and care in choosing every little part of the gift.
