Today felt like Christmas all over again. Two parcels were waiting for me in our mail box…and no bills! Woo hoo!
Mr. Painted Quilt and I were talking just the other day about our move to Nova Scotia and if I missed anything from our “other” life. Without hesitation I said the one thing I missed the most was my monthly guild meetings and all the gals that I had become friends with over the last couple of years. Well, lo and behold, look what arrived today…
A gorgeous, hand stitched penny rug made out of the most delightful selection of wool! The picture simply does not do it justice. I’ve put it on top of our new fireplace for now but I’m not sure whether that will be it’s final resting place. I might find a better home for it once the renovations are done and everything is unpacked.
Enclosed was a card with a note from each of the guild members. I know that quite a few a few of the members read my blog and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for thinking about me and for the kind and thoughtful wishes that you sent my way. I am writing this with tears in my eyes and please know that I miss you. Giant hugs to all of you!
I also received a package from Dianne. Although Dianne doesn’t have an active blog, she does read them…the same way I did before I actually took the plunge and started blogging myself.
As a way of saying thank you for my FFF’s and Raggedy & Friends BOM, Dianne sent me a gorgeous redwork Christmas ornie and a hand made, hand painted seam ripper in it’s own little case. The seam ripper was purchased from Lynette Anderson Designs and it’s the cutest gadget ever!
Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, Dianne. You too have touched my heart and I will cherish your gifts always.
And speaking of FFF’s (First Friday Freebies), this Friday is the First Friday of the month so be sure to come back then when I release a brand new design created just for you! I like it and I hope that you will too!
