I received a gift from my friend Lelia a few weeks ago. I was busy getting ready for the trip to the Betsy Morgan class in Indianapolis, so never posted anything here.
Lelia was one of the very first bloggers I connected with when I first started my blog back in 2005. She gently encouraged me as I explored and became comfortable with this new communication vehicle. After a 7-year online friendship, we finally met last October when I was in Indiana visiting House of Stitches. Lelia also met my mom on that visit; they share a common interest - tatting. We enjoyed our visit.
A few weeks ago, a box arrived from Lelia. In the box was a bag for me and a bag for my mom. Lelia had made these origami bags with beautiful fabric and filled them with goodies for each of us.
Notecards with beautiful Monet paintings on them, a tin for needles, and a Vera Bradley tape measure! My mom's bag included tatting thread and a shuttle.
It was a wonderful and unexpected surprise from a great friend. Thanks Lelia!
