Last week I got an amazing and unexpected gift in the mail as a direct result of that tablecloth gift. Another friend of my mother's had gotten wind of the tablecloth gift. She is a long-time crafter who, unfortunately, can no longer hold a hook, and who didn't have anyone to pass along her trove of books to. So she sent them to me!
|Here's part of the letter that was enclosed in the box.|
|Some thread, some squares for a bedspread, and the bedspread pattern.|
|And all these books. Just look at them! Some are quite old.|
|I can't wait to leaf through them and see what's in my future.|
|The best part is that this woman is also clearly a huge fan of thread and doilies.|
So there you have it. An amazing gift from a very generous woman. It has left me wondering though: who will I gift all my books and stash and hooks and needles and looms to when I can't hold a hook anymore??
