Odds and sods

Here is a variety of items from Lee-Ann's parcel. I've got a dozen more photos to post here, but I'm getting tired, so they'll have to wait for a day or two. Enjoying them? Some round doilies: An old teddy bear, clad in a dress with an embroidered flower on it. A very old pack of transfers - the ones in the pack are alphabet letters for monograms, but there is an extra sheet here with floral emblems. This Myart centrepiece is almost finished. It needs a small amount of stitching in black thread, and the edge to be crocheted. A job for someone else - not me! Dear little cross stitch sampler. I'm not certain this is as old at it would appear at first glance. These have been reproduced by the millions in recent years.

Gina I was wondering if you are likely to be in Melbourne over the new year. Jerry and I are coming down for a week and I thought we might have a cup of coffee somewhere if you have time. I know its a busy time of the year but drop me a line if you might be able to wrangle some free time
