Another Gift From Pat

This is another present from Pat, and when Iopened it, it knocked my socks off. What a beautiful job she did, I love-love-love it. It is the Four Seasons. I took pictures of it in sections so you could see it better, but the pictures don't really do it justice.

You are the best, THANK YOU!!!!
