And look what came from Iceland into my mailbox !
I had posted a comment on her Blog, when she showed the cute baggies she had made. Not only did she sent one to me, but also a box of Icelandic playing cards (how did she know I love these, though I'm not a player), a beautiful 4 seasons pattern, a pin with Belgium/Iceland flags and a cute notecard.
"Just because..." gifts are very special : they're totally surprising you, and moving you. Someone, somewhere, reads about you, and just feels the need to please you, to send something personal to you... It's magical, and very precious. Thanks, Güdrün ! I like you too, "just because..."
I recently noticed that I never posted any picture of our treasured grandson. So, let me introduce ANDREA, aged 2.... Just look at these "smarties eyes", as Darlene says, and this tender smile, and these cheeks to kiss ! Isn't he cute ?
No quilty picture tonight, sorry. However, I can tell I finished quilting my Autumn 4 Seasons Swap, and hopefully will bind it tonight.
I was planning much more accomplishments, but school has started again, and I have to get used to some routine changes...
-"Just Because" gifts
- new students, (and former ones coming back to greet me)
- the smell of autumn in the garden, just after the rain
- a new body lotion
