how sweet is this...


Yesterday I received a package in the mail from 
the talented and most generous Alicia
wrapped to perfection wouldn't you say...
too pretty to open so I had to enjoy it for a day.
i just adore the Asian influence...


finally i peeked inside to find...


the most adorable little altered journal book...
such tiny perfect details!
and this from a girl who claims sewing is a challenge
look at those amazing embroidery stitches!
such perfection!



a truly beautiful little treasure!

thank you Alicia!

Beautiful parcel and lovely contents. I always love to see the way artists package their goodies.

alteredbits said...

you are ever so sweet, my friend! what a sweet post this is!

i swear i have major sewing issues. :) that little loopy bit on the upper right of the "secrets" -- TOTAL mistake. the thread got knotted so i just went with it and made another couple of loops to make appear intentional (one of many examples).

it was so fun to make this for you and i'm so very glad that you like it. a million thanks to you for being such a kind and generous friend.

What a stunning little gift. It would have been extremely difficult for me to unwrap it since the parcel is a masterpiece in itself. Thank goodness for digital photography!
