I am a very lucky girl, because

I was given this as a gift:
It's a shoe bag, red velvet, all lined inside.  It is gorgeous.  A friend of mine made it after I commented on the one she had when we last saw one another.  She has a fancy dancy sewing machine that does embroidery.  It's handy if you are going to a function and wearing high heals and want to change into another pair of shoes.

This is one that dd chose:
and I bought this one off her for my good friend:
The detail on all these bags is stunning.  She made another dozen or so and she is donating them to auction off for a charity.

As you can see we are very fortunate to receive these.

These are absolutely stunning!!!!
I would love to see some more of her beautiful work. Lucky girl is right.
She should be selling these, with all her talent especially the detail work I'm sure they would sell easily.

What a great idea - the embroidery is stunning! Your friend is very talented and you are indeed lucky. Congrats on getting your blogging mojo back - I think that I have left mine in the U.S. - lol!
