Today I had a lovely day with a dear old friend.
She faced a long car journey with her man
in rainy and stormy weather to meet me in Rotterdam,
and it was fun together
She brought me a wonderful piece
of Kaffe Fasset "Megamendung"
and some pieces of lace.
She provided me earlier with some old odds and ends
so I took the finished pieces with me, to show her what became of it.
(We first met thirty years ago in textile-art classes)
The other friend I made only recently,
through the internet
I most likely will never ever meet her in real life :
she lives in Australia !
We talked about felting and making little "Waldorf"dolls
and visited each other's blog and talked some more
and I sent her something for her seasonal table ...
Last Saturday a big envelope arrived through the mail :
... ? ...
did I order something that I totally forgot about ???
until I discovered the name on the back
Thank you my dear, for your lovely early christmas presents !
a magazine about felting, some wonderful variegated threads
(of which I surely will make good use in some stitching projects)
and three little angels and a tiny baby Jesus
( I put up the christmas tree this afternoon and they are in it !!! )
