Update-Ellen's Basket and a lovely gift

Hello everyone,
Been a while since I last posted.3 and a half weeks to be exact.The climatic variations of Bangalore took a toll on the family and we've been playing ping pong with flu and its various associates for the past few weeks.

On the stitching front,I haven't been able to start anything new,but I did finish something which had been relegated to the background for a long long time.Here it is:



This piece is called Ellen's Basket.You can see the individual baskets under this category.After stitching up the various flowers during Sharon's stitch challenge TAST 2007,I just couldn't interest myself to stitch the baskets and slowly other projects got more priority than this one.Last week I picked it up again ,finished it yesterday,washed,ironed and now its going to be framed.
There's something else too that I want to share with you . Just a week back,I received a package from my dear friend Judy. (Iam linking to her wool felted pumpkin tutorial ,since that's what made me fall in love with her blog)
I was expecting the package since she had written to me,but had no idea about the contents. Let me show you what it contained:


A beautiful pink fabric (her favourite color and favourite flowers) ,some DMC threads, some more beautiful DMC Rayons ,silk ribbons and the whole set of needles for SRE (yippee!!) , a personally written letter (I love letters!!!) and a Western Michigan postcard showing off the lovely place she lives. THANK YOU Judy!!! You made my day,week,month and the coming months ;))
If anyone wants to write letters and share their thoughts, Iam here...write to me...I'll reply.

Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa
