I just remembered ......

...... that I forgot (make sense!!!!??) to show you this

a cross-stitch needle/scissor case I made for my friend's 60th (don't tell her I told you!!) birthday in January. I mentioned it a little while back, but in a bit of a senior moment, had forgotten to take any photographs! But when my 60-year old friend (aren't I rotton!!) came for dinner on Saturday, she brought it with her so that I could take a few snaps - unfortunately, it was mid-evening, so the light isn't brilliant. This is the inside:

That's it for now - just a short one this time. I shall have something similar to show soon, as I'm working on another one (another pressie).

That's what friends are for (to bring with her the gift and give you a chance to take a pic - not broadcasting a lady's age!)
It is beautiful and it shows that despite being OAP - your friend has not lost her marbles:- lol (joke)
It is very pretty and very useful too.

I'm glad we got to see this in the end as it is very pretty.
Love the Blackbird Designs fabric you used. I have some of that fabric line in my stash.
I'm sure your friend loves her gift.
