Australian Arrival

Yesterday I literally squealed when my hearts swap package from Tiffane arrived.
It was delivered to my office and though I wanted to rip into it right away, I practiced self-control and waited until I got home so I could document and savor the moment.
 Inside the gold paper was this beautiful bag with the most gorgeous embroidery. 
The detail is absolutely amazing!
 Tiffane is a wonderful felt artist.
Inside the beautiful embroidered bag was a sweet little felted heart card embellished with beads and embroidery.
A felted pinkeep with embroidered flowers and sweet little heart pins. 
 And last but not least, two felted hearts for hanging.
 I am totally in awe of how beautiful everything is.
Thank you so much Tiffane
And thank you Shelley for organizing the I Love Hearts Swap.
Have a lovely day!

Hi Tammy, I'm so glad your package finally arrived.... and that you like it ! .. The linen bag began as a pouch for your crochet hooks which should have rolled up... but I had a change of heart. I thought it might carry a ball of wool and a small project and hook for your travelling adventures.. .and the red felted heart - you wondered if it was all wool? - It's merino fleece felted over a timber template ... I hope they were worth the wait! Happy belated 'I love Hearts Swap' x Tiffane

Aw Tammy this is my kinda stuff!!!

Tiffane's gift is so pretty - beautiful embroidery on linen, I totally understand why you squealed!

You were extremely disciplined and controlled waiting until you got home to rip it open, but I'm glad you did so we could see the beautiful wrapping in pristine condition!
Those darling felt hearts... aww

Smiles and hugs
