Day 361- I Still Am...

Gift received on 11/12/2012

It's been 4 years but I still feel the same thrill at receiving a gift from afar as the one I experienced the 1st time someone I have never met sent me something just because. 

I am just as overwhelmed by the generosity of such a friend who gave me something as extravagant as a piece of work she had spent many hours making.

And when this precious gift came with words like you can stain it, cut it, make holes in it to make it more authentic-it's yours. I also hope it will encourage you (somehow) not to give up stitching in miniature, I am moved beyond words because in that simple sentence, she is telling me, I may not met you but I know you and I am your friend. 

Thank you Natalia, for this beautiful gesture and your friendship.

I recognized it at once just looking at the small pic in the dashboard - Turbo-Needle's stunning Chinese rug!!! What a gift from this very special lady - and I hope this will give you a little pinch to start miniature-stitching again. I'm just selfish... I'd like to see results... *teehee*

WOOOOOW Sans, you are very lucky, Natalia spoiled you! She makes so beautiful embroiderey and stitching works. Congratulations and Enjoy it. Keep on trying, I didn't know this of you (about the stitching).
I like the picture of the basket and the boxes with the labels too.

Dear Sans!
You have got wonderful gifts! Enjoy..
And if I am not so wrong the Beautiful c
Carpet might even be "A flying CARPET": so from now on you might be able to take flights when ever you like, where ever you like :) ?

The Chinese rug is a real jem! Natalia's work is stunning! Enjoy this wonderful gift.

The rug is exquisite! And as generous as the gesture of the gift is permission to work an 'extreme alteration' on it if desirable. I like Kikka's suggestion, that perhaps it is a flying carpet that may take you on many adventures.
