I made a smaller version of the heart doily for a friend of mine:
I mailed it off to her with a Little Matryoshka gift tag
Hoping that she would love it

And the day before it reached her, a gift she'd made for me reached my front door:

Isn't it beautiful?
It's needle tatted. I have been wanting to try needle tatting for quite a while and seeing this has made me want to try it even more :)

It was so nice to get suprise gift. It's always so lovely to know that someone is thinking of you :)
Also, I've started up a Facebook page for my blog.
