Don't You Love To Surprise A Friend?

As stitchers in this blogging/cyberspace community we have the opportunity to stitch fun surprises for friends that we haven't actually met face to face. Let's face it, not everyone we know appreciates the time and effort that goes into our beloved craft. But a fellow stitcher, well that's another story. She or he not only loves the finished product, but also has firsthand knowledge of the gift of ourselves that we put into every stitch.

Most of you are familiar withVonna through her blog and her Fair and Square group. She is a truly lovely lady who I admire a great deal. When I was browsing the web, I came across a lovely victorian style alphabet. I thought that the letter V was especially nice and thus my "plan of surprise" was born.

Vonna has already posted great pictures on her blog. I just got a new digital camera (SonyDSLR-200) last week and definitely need a few lessons on how to stylize my photos. I've also had numerous problems trying to load pictures here on Blogger and getting them to be clickable so that you can see a close-up.

Thank you one and all for stopping by my blog. I treasure our stitcher's community here on the web and each of you that are part of it.
