A beautiful present.

Another gold package arrived in the mail.

I know this is from friend Pammy.  I have kept all the gold envelopes that have come in the mail over the years and now have quite a collection.

Inside a beautiful hand drawn card.

I think I will frame this one.  And the wrapping paper is hand printed.  It is also now all ironed and rolled onto a cylinder for future use.

And an antique embroidered piece from India.

It is the front of a child's dress.  Shiska mirror work and lots of other stitches.

What I at first thought were buttons are actually little tassels that have felted up.

The stitching of the front opening is interesting and isn't perfect. But that adds to the charm.

It is actually stitched through 2 layers of fabric.  The top layer looks like silk, but it might be a good quality rayon and the backing is a printed cotton.

The back of the embroidery is interesting as well.

Isn't it just .... I can't think of the right word.  Mouthwatering, Wonderful, out of this world, too much. Just, just...

Thank you old friend.
