Fabric postcard and embroidered tea towel.

I had two gorgeous surprises in my mail today - a fabric postcard from Kathy, my swap partner in the Under The Sea Yahoo group. Here is her card. What a coincidence that she has featured a mermaid on hers, because I also stitched a small mermaid on my card for her. The other surprise was this beautiful 'tea towel' which was stitched for me by Kathleen in the U.S.A. You might remember reading here a couple of weeks ago, that I posted Kathleen some of my old unworked linens for her to stitch, as I knew she liked vintage linen. She didn't tell me she was going to do this for me as a way of thanking me! Thank you so much, Kathleen, this is so pretty. There is no way I'll be using it to wipe dishes! It will be displayed in my kitchen with other hand stitched tea towels.
