Beautiful thimble and holder and a visit to the Gallery

Gwen shared this beautiful silver thimble and holder with us on Wednesday. Her dear husband, who is sadly missed, gave her this special gift. It is a very lovely keepsake.
After going to stitching for a short time (and not doing a stitch), I met up with Di and Karen from the Bay for a quick shop, lunch and a visit to the Art Gallery. They were going to the Masterpieces of Paris and as I had already been, I went for a wander in the Gallery. I found this exquisite bed covering which had been beautifully embroidered many years ago. The tiny silk stitches were unbelievable.

It was also very large! I sneakily took these few photos to show you.
