just follow the Pretty Pink Road...See ya'll there..
Can't you see the glow of pink begin..I can..and it's filled the screen with sparkly,pretty,pink hugs and love....
She wrote to say she wanted to send me a pretty crochet piece her mother had made. I thought it so sweet that she wanted to share something so special with me and as you can see, her mother crochet's beautifully. There are stitches in this sweet doily that are called picot..and all my life I've loved that stitch and hated to make it..it's not an easy one to make look right...and her mother has managed to make it so pretty. I will treasure this sweet gift forever.. Now,I need to help her mother with some more Sunbonnet Sue applique patterns. I've not been able to print them off for her..my printer is out of ink and I haven't gotten any yet..but I've scanned some in and emailed them so Charlotte can run them off. I can't wait to see what pretty thing she makes.
The next package is from our own sweet LaVoice from Thoughts From MeMe's Corner.She wrote and wanted my address and knowing from her picture,she has that beautiful twinkle in her eye..I just knew she was up to something. And sure enough..she was. As her pretty note said, this was a "Just Because" gift..because that was the best kind...and she's right. When I got the little package, she should have been able to hear me squeal/scream/felt the ground shake from my jumping up and down.. (I'm too old to jump that way anymore :)......look,just look what was in the package...Sweet Sunbonnet Sue potholders...beautiful vintage,quilted Sue potholders...,not one, but two of the little cuties. Can ya'll tell I'm smiling?? The color of smiles is pink.. I promise you..it is.
My wishes for everyone today are that someone special sends them a "Just Because" gift...There is nothing like them. There has been so many health issues in my family lately..and "Just Because" makes it better. We all need those kinds of hugs..
and I have been so privledged and honored to meet such wonderful blogger friends..
I care about so many of you..and each day,I make new friends.. I am blessed..
