Beautiful Gifts from Kim

A while ago I mentioned my friend, Kim, at Wisdom with Needle and Thread was celebrating her 60th birthday this year. Giving to others makes Kim happy, so she decided to celebrate by mailing out 60 RAKs (random acts of kindness.) 

When I commented on Kim's post to wish her a happy birthday, I pointed out that she had just spoiled me with a generous giveaway, so if I was one of the first 60 to reply, she could skip my name and spoil someone else. (You may see the giveaway goodies here.) Of course, Kim replied that she added me to her list.

Last week, I received the box in the photo above filled with beautiful fabrics, threads, shell beads and these hand crafted treasures.

Kim created this darling needlebook for me. My love of seahorses and under the sea themed projects did not escape her notice. It is a bit difficult to see in this photo, but the seahorse she cross stitched is darling! There is even a small bead for the eye.

The fabric used to create the book also has darling seahorses. The fabric ribbon ruler is the top of a pocket. And the pins all have shells on them. Too sweet!

And just look at this scissors fob! The seahorse charm is so much prettier in person. The beads and shells all work together beautifully.

Kim, thank you so much! I smile every time I clip my threads, thinking of you. You are just too sweet! I hope you have an amazing 60th birthday. (((Hugs)))

If you are not familiar with Kim's blog, Wisdom with Needle and Thread, I encourage you to check it out. Her work is fabulous! If you would like to read about the other RAKs she has sent out, you may check them out on this page on her blog. 

Happy Wednesday!
