Before I start this entry, let me apologize for the quality of the photos. I wish I could get a better photo but wanted to try and capture the true color.
I just wrote a blog entry today on my other blog about a sweet surprise dropping on my doormat. I am feeling very blessed today! This evening, our packages postman (we have two - one brings the mail and the other any packages) rang my doorbell. He handed me two packages. First, I received a thoughtful box of tea from a dear friend Hazel in England. I am so touched by your sweet letter to me Hazel and thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness. I am honored that you feel I inspired you and wish you the very best of luck with your "Christmas Spice" demonstration. I am sure it will go very well and hope everyone enjoys making the little tabletopper quilt. I will think of you as I drink a cup of this lovely tea.
I then opened an envelope from a blogging friend in the US. Teresa made me a PIF gift which is just beautiful. I am wearing it now as I type these words ~ a knitted scarf in gem stone tones. It is so soft! I took this silly photo of myself wearing it as there is no one here now to take one for me. I almost thought it was too funny looking to even share it but want Teresa to see it. She said she wanted me to know she was praying for my health problems and I feel like she sent me a real hug while I wear this scarf! I love the colors in it. It reminds me of our heather fields here in Holland. Just perfect Teresa. Thank you so very much for the scarf and your friendship!
