Ahhh, Mother is relaxing under the beautiful blanket which Tara sent her. She also received a beautiful sweater from Tara and a scarf which I knit for her. So, she is set for the winter. My sister, Mary, is sending some money and I think new shoes will be in order.
My dear friend, Ann, remember me with this box full of wonderful goodies...pecan brittle, a cute mouse ornament, lavender to grow, candy, notecards, a magnetic bookmark, some really good tea, and gorgeous yarn. The yarn is cotton and came with a pattern for me to try...it will be fun!
This would be a gorgeous scarf that my friend, Cheryl knit for me. It came along with some really interesting soap...Almond Biscotti...(Cocoa Butter and Olive Oil pamper while fresh coffee grounds gently scrub your skin)...the soap came from turtlecovesoaps.esty.com...The scarf from Cheryl's hands...(this is one of the first times that anyone has knit anything for me...)
My friend, Pat, sent me this adorable little kit to make an Altered Children ornament. It is going to be fun trying a new technique this coming year.
My daughter, Tara, sent me a beautiful blanket, too! And, a knitting book I have been wanting for a while...No Sheep For You. Looking forward to knitting most of the items in this book! (Especially the silk robe!!!)
There will be more to share with you - when we celebrate our Christmas with Scarlett in the next week or so...plus I also received a cute knit hat from one of my knitting/quilting friends and a handmade ornament which I still need to get a photo of...
All in all, it has been a very nice Christmas!!!!
