a big thank you

Time and again it happens :
a pleasant surprise is coming through the mailbox.

This time I got some advance notice
but I had completely forgotten about it
In the envelope was a brown paper bag
and inside that :

the promised "scraps"

Well ..... yeah
but placed on the floor the patch grew bigger and bigger

multicoloured beauties on end
(if I had laid them out without overlap it would have been a square metre !)
Even some lovely glittering thread !

Thank you SUS !!!!

(a warm coloured gift, from a warm friend, living in a cold country)

All that gave me spirit enough to draw
a comfort mandala
for a very sad family
(of which I'll only show a small piece)


Even Man has started with his mandalas again

 But he has other talents too,
like the homemade sausage rolls
for granddaughter's postponed birthday party last Saturday

they were goooood, not a single one left
