A surprise from Greece

A little impromptu surprise post today!
 
My postman has very swiftly delivered a
surprise seaside themed parcel from Greece
 
Ariadne has very kindly sent me some little goodies ☺
 

A funny Cicadas post card,
Madeira threads (silk & nylon),
White aida fabric (22 ct),
 
 
her beautiful trademark stone - made especially for me, if you please! -


And a little cross stitch finish

 
Design is
The Guardians of the Sea from The Little Stitcher
It looks so pretty!
Even the frame has seaside details!!
 
 
Thank you so much Ariadne for such a lovely surprise
Cross stitch friends are really the best!
 
Happy Stitching!
Mii x
