A giving time of year.
On Monday I received a Christmas card along with pattern for Mary Jane slippers from Erin. Why? Because she is a kind soul who knew I thought the pattern was lovely and she wanted to brighten my day. Thank you Erin!
Today I got home to find a package from my spoilee from secret pal 6, Janet. She thought I could use a nice surprise as well so she sent me some candy, two scrumptious skeins of Shadow yarn from Knit picks in sunset, and a skein of Koigu --YUM. Thank you Janet!
The card she sent said: "For the best seat in the house, you'll have to move the cat". A very true statement as evidenced by this picture:
I'm still swooning over the lovely SP6 Angel package that I received from Linda last week.
No one had to send anything & it was out of the kindness of their hearts that they did. I appreciate that more than I can say. Thank you.
This time of year is so hectic with the rush to get/make gifts and all the trappings of the season. It is nice to be reminded that giving of time, love and friendship are the most important gifts you can give. I thank all my friends for those gifts this year. I look forward to your thoughts, advice and support every day.
I wish you all a most joyful Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year!
I have heard of Dr. Who, but never seen it before! I had an old friend who was downright obsessed with it in college...now I am finally enlightened :). It makes more sense why you're making that now...at first I was like "why on earth would anyone want a creepy old dude scarf?" and I figured there must be something behind it!
