A Beautiful Gift

I struggled a bit to get pictures that fully show the beauty of a package that my friend Soma sent to me...it has not kept me from using them though!
She made me some gorgeous mitts from the warmest color of yarn awhile ago...then she surprised me with  a beautiful hat to match.  I had an idea I was getting the hat (cozy and toasty and quite beautiful on my head in these negative temperatures we have been having) but it was a complete surprise when she shared this beautiful table runner and napkin set.  They are so well stitched, she has such a talent for cross stitch.  I need her to share how she got such perfect round berries too, I wish you all could look at this in person, it is just wonderful.


Thank you friend for sharing your beautiful talents with me, I will treasure them. I think they pair well with my grandma's Christmas ornaments and her carnival glass bowl :)

You didn't know but I have been playing a bit with cross-stitch too...it does not compare to your beauty, but I have been getting the hang of it...this is a Frosted Pumpkin pattern

Sweet hat. Love your fingerless gloves, and now with the matching hat you will be so fashionable. Pretty cross stitching? I can't tell what are her berries? Are they wool? They are gorgeous. Your cross stitching is looking mighty nice too. I like handwork. A few minutes every day and you end up with something beautiful.

Beautiful and cozy gifts!! I also have to tell you that I have pretty much the same ornaments as you have shown - only a few now, from my parents yet. They are fragile and many have broken off at the part where the loop for the hook is, but I treasure them all the more.

Lovely work. Soma is quite talented! I used to do cross stitch once upon a time - really enjoyed it.

Seeing your grandma's gorgeous Christmas ornaments and the glass bowl on the runner made me feel so warm and honoured. Thank You so much for sharing the photos!! Your cross-stitch is looking beautiful. I hope you will share more.
