Viryadana……..”This is an embroidered picture of the Buddha. It was made for me as a gift by my longest standing special friend in Australia, Patsy.  She is a very dear friend. I have now been living in Australia for more than 40 years but we knew each other back in NZ when we were very young.  She moved over here and when I arrived a few years later in I lived in her house for 3 years as I settled into this country.

Patsy made this special gift for me over 10 years ago. It was a surprise and I was deeply touched. Each stitch feels like it has friendship in it. It’s unique. “
