Yana makes some lovely things for herself, friends and family, she seems to turn her hand expertly to any task whether it be toys, clothes or furnishings. I think her embroidery work is beautiful. Just look at what she did for her little niece over here.
Anyway, it all got started because I have admired her tissue holders. She has made fabric ones, and embroidered linen ones, and I asked her could she make me one please? I always have a scrappy plastic tissue packet floating around my handbag, often more than one at a time, my tissues deserve better, they need a holder.
Yana agreed to do a swap with me - one tissue holder for one of my sleeping softies.
It was a done deal. She even made a little wrist pin cushion for me in the bargain. Its linen with a touch of pink embroidery, so sweet. Thanks again Yana, can't tell you how happy I was to throw those scrappy plastic tissue packets away!
