I have finally found the time to make and send a surprise
to one of the member of the RAK blog I belong to!!
This was my first package since I joined a few months ago.
My little surprise envelope went all the way to beautiful Canada to
Anne at Doll's Musings.
I had decided to enclose a handmade item.
I chose the design titled Good Things from Lizzie Kate
My model was stitched on 28 ct Zweigart Brittney evenweave olive fabric,
using DMC listed threads and finished off as an ornament
The fabric showing on the background is the one I used for the back of my piece.
I have used DMC threads for the trim
and added a few beads to make it look pretty :)
Now, no RAK would have been complete without the addition of little extras!
So I made sure to enclose
a polka fabric fat quarter,
some Anchor skeins and
2 little Cadbury chocolate bars
(which I hope have not melted by the time they reached their destination)
It was so much fun to prepare this surprise.
The hardest bit was to keep quiet about it!!
I was so tempted to inform Anne something was on its way to her letterbox ☺
I'm sure this Random Act of Stitching Kindness did the trick and made her day!
Oh I do love surprises!!
