Mini patchwork for my Japanese friend.

This is the finished product of the crazy patchwork piece I made for my Japanese friend, who is 90 years old. I do not do as much embellishment on my patchwork as most of the more experienced CQ stitchers. I haven't got the time or the talent, for a start! But I also feel that any more embellishment on a small piece like this would have been overdoing it. When I presented it to my friend last week, she didn't realise I was giving it to her until she saw what I had written on the back. She was quite overcome, near to tears. It is always a pleasure to make a gift for someone who show such depths of appreciation.
