My heart swells with the kindness and thoughtfulness of people that I have never met that are thousands of miles away in a different land. I would have never imagined that a blog that's mostly about me :-) would actually touch anyone so far away and that I would have been touched by so many. If I had known this I would have started many years ago; so much joy and heartfelt interest on both sides shared by all. It's been a wonderful way to connect with like-minded ladies that magically transform into friends.
A package arrived this weekend from one of my lovely blogging friends and CAL buddies from the UK, Carole. You can find Carole here at her blog called StarDust Gems and Ribbon.
You'll see her beautiful Granny Rose pillow there, too.
Here are the treasures she sent:
There's a granny bag pattern in this book that I am so excited to try out,
and some awesome chair covers....
She also sent me a pattern for a granny rose afghan similar to the
CAL Granny Rose that will help me fine-tune my pattern.
As you must have guessed, my favorite part of all is the pin cushion:
Just look at these colors.
I'm melting - they are so pretty!
It's as if she knew that I have been sticking my pins and needles
in the sofa armrest next to where I crochet.
Thank you, Carole!
Your kindness and thoughtfulness brings tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart!
P.S. The originator of this pin cushion pattern can be found here at the
Clever Chesire Cats Blog.
I squeeled with glee when I discovered that this blogger's grandmother is from Norway!
