Carole, not only is this so beautifully designed, but I especially love how you tailored it to your friend! I'm not surprised she wants to show it off to her quilting friends... she knows how special this gift is! All of your embellishments and quilting components are lovely! It's so hard to pick a favorite element, but I do especially adore the wooden spool and the scissors. :o) Beautifully done! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
