15 for 15....

For the first day in a while I have not stitched. It was hard, but with Blossom's birthday just hours away I had a secret plan that needed all day to execute.

She is 15 tomorrow, and what a wonderful 15 years it has been. She is such a beautiful soul, so loving and open, so honest and caring, always a joy and never a burden. We are blessed to call her 'daughter'.

So my plan is to give her 15 special gifts for 15 special years. She knows what a few of the gifts are, but has no idea about the rest. She is in for many surprises in the morning! Some of them were only a couple of dollars, but they mean something, and that's what the "15 for 15" is all about. I made tiny little cards, numbered 1 - 15 so she opens then in order, all with a special message for her relating to the gift and why I chose it. Tomorrow I'll take photos of her with them all so you can see. :-)

If you are a praying woman please offer a pray of blessing on her for the year ahead. This last year has been a hard one for our family and she has borne a lot, but come through with hope and faith, inspiring me always.

Debbie in Jerusalem has stitched two of my free designs in reverse redwork and I just love them!
If you go to her blog you'll see more reverse redwork embroideries, all of them so lovely.

If you would like to stitch my Camelzz design for yourself you will find the download HERE.

p.s. Please tell her that Bella is LOVING the bridal doll she gave her when you were here. I hid it away for a while because I didn't think she as quite old enough to look after it properly - but I got it out today and she had such fun carrying her around, and putting her to bed, and lovingly dressing and undressing her. I must get a picture to put on my blog. So gorgeous. :-)
