I have made so many wonderful friends and acquaintances and can't believe how many wonderful gifts and cards I received as farewell presents. While Andrew received numerous baskets of chocolate, relishes and wine I received some amazing and thoughtful treasures. As this is a blog of my creative textile ventures I will show some of the beautiful handmade gifts I received. Some of my friends in the Vale are not only great Patchworkers but also dabble in machine embroidery and I was the lucky recipient of their time and talents.
