Exchange Gift

It's the month of Ramadan,
and all Muslims around the world will fast from sunrise to sunset for a month.
 
 
It was on the 6th day of fasting that I received my exchange gift..
all the way from Coimbra, Portugal!! Wohooo...yay!!
What a great day to celebrate Ramadan with a special gift.. :)
 
 
 
 
My lovely friend "Rita" had made me a lovely
box with a porcupine cross-stitched on it.
 

I had always wanted to stitch this design some day, but now I have it stitched for me.. double yay!!
 
"My Favourite Things"
embossed on a lovely card inside the box
 :)


 * red envelope ~ cross-stitch threads
* blue envelope ~ ribbon strips & pegs
* white pouch ~ buttons
* pink pouch ~ items for scrapbooking
 
 
A lovely postcard!! :)
Coimbra ~ That's where Rita is from.

And also Rita gave me a nice letter. :)
I guess Rita likes polka dots, as all her gifts are mostly in polka dots!!
So, I take the liberty also to take the pictures of my gifts with a polka dot background..hihi.
;P


Thanks Rita for the lovely gift. Hope to hear more from you.

Hugs,
Fara
