You may remember my dear friend Judith, my creative buddy who I play with all the time and co-creator of the FIRE blog. Well, when I went to Ohio to take the Dorothy Caldwell workshop, I stayed with Judith's daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren, whom I had never met before. Just corresponding with her daughter, Ellen, in the weeks before the Ohio workshop, I had this feeling, she would be as nice as Judith.
I was right and we've kept in touch, shared email with photos of our projects and just gabbed. She is so lovely!!
Well, this past weekend, she and her daughter did a sewing project which Ellen said was a secret until done and that she would send photos Monday. I know they have been doing their own EPP project and I had gotten photo updates but this project was a "stash buster". She sent photos of the cutest needle books they had made from scraps and she was sending me one with love and positive energy stitched into it.
I love this not only because it is in my favorite colors, and very useful for my yet to arrive "straw needles" but the love that it holds will come with me in my basket to all my upcoming chemo and radiation appointments.
Thank you Ellen and Abby for your sweet thoughtful gift!!
