Today in the mail I got Sweet Birdy Love!
Claire's blog posts read like a letter from home. They remind me of the letters that my grandmother and I used to write back and forth; day to day things, a bit of weather, what the family was up to....
I follow Claire's creativity closely too. She uses lots of polka dots and one of my favourite themes is chickens.
When I saw this beautiful needle holder on her blog recently I just had to have one. I was only lamenting that week the muddle I was getting in with all my embroidery and sewing needles.
Don't you just love the little saying on the back.
Suits me so fine!
And inside my needles will stay sorted and ready as I do a lot of my embroidery on the go in waiting rooms and other peoples' places.
I was overwhelmed with her generosity though, not only did she gift me the needle book, but also
the red chicken tea towel and an egg cosy. Did you notice the chicken design in the first picture and in the one above the other side is an egg.
I've said it before and I'll say it another million times before my life is through,
there are many beautiful and gentle folk out there and there is certainly hope for humanity yet.
Nearly everyday I read about random acts of kindness and I know that this must be happening ten-fold because these people are doing in our community circles too.
Thank you Claire with all my heart.
Thank you for making a difference.
