I am the delighted recipient of something quite special from Diana Hale! Not only has Diana HAND SEWN my name and her name onto a piece of muslin, she has also stitched it around the sides to make an envelope and embroidered the bust of a vintage woman wearing the sort of hat that I'd like to own on the back. I believe that I am not meant to unstitch the envelope so am blogging as is.  If I am wrong and there is more between the stitches, I trust Diana will tell me.
 
My mother is visiting and her comment that you can't really appreciate the feel of the piece online, is spot on.  This is something to hold, to run your fingers over and to appreciate first hand.  Thank you Diana.  It is a gem and I am touched that you sent it to me!
