Gifted.....

I received some lovely birthday presents, 

but the nicest handmade one gifted to me was.....


this beautiful table runner!

It was made by my very dear, and very gifted friend



We are linking up today so please go over, say hello 

and hear more about it! 

I'm going to let my photos speak for themselves...



It IS straight- just my bad photography!



Linen, wool felt, tiny French knots and hand stitching!


I am very privileged to own such an exquisite piece of 

fabric art, made by a very talented lady!

Thank you Mary - I will treasure it always!
