Gift for a Friend

My closest friends know that I am not always the most timely; in fact, I am generally "flying by the seat of my pants" with most things.  (I think it is a family trait.)  Eventually though, I always come around to getting the important things done.  One such important thing was a little gift for my friend Wendy Jo who celebrated a birthday back in January.  Wendy Jo has been a long time blogging friend, we've participated in many of the same exchanges together, and we've met a couple times, twice in Minnesota and then once last year at a retreat.



After returning from the Attic, I stitched up this little pattern book for Wendy Jo.  It says "A token of friendship and remembrance."  It has the fold out accordion pleated pattern pages on the inside.


Please say a little prayer for Wendy Jo if you would as she is going through a challenge right now while receiving radiation treatments for breast cancer.

That's all for today.  Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to work I go.....

That is a gorgeous gift for Wendy Jo. I'm sure she will love it especially during this trying time. Of course, I will add her to my prayer list for return to health!

Take care, Cathi!
