Thanks for stopping by!
Busy Monday morning,
but I wanted to share something rather splendid with you,
which a dear friend gave to me this Christmas.
Just as we were saying before the event,
although it’s always generous of anybody
to give anybody else anything,
it’s those rare handmade gifts which are so appreciated.
Just the fact that somebody likes you enough to invest
that amount of time and energy in a gift for you
is a gift in itself!
So imagine my dismay when Dee presented me with this:
How beautiful is this book?!
Actually, I cried when I opened it.
Just sat and wept,
with all those hours of effort and friendship in my lap.
“Hope you like it,” said Dee.
But I couldn’t speak.
The inside covers of the book were full of Clarity too,
“I just had to add your favourite boy somewhere” she chuckled.
And well, when I turned to the back page,
my mouth opened in disbelief.
All our stencils, and a little lace.
I am sure Dee won’t mind my sharing this gift with you.
Not only is it the kind of work I aspire to and want to achieve,
but to think that a friend made it just for me.
Blew me away.
We knew Dee was clever, didn’t we.
But did we know just how talented?
So there we are.
Not only very talented, but also very kind and very thoughtful.
