sent me the loveliest surprise package! Noreen claims I started it all, but I think she did... every once in a while, we send each other a little present. This time I received an adorable little organizer bag, a beautiful blue scarf, some luscious thread, and two gorgeous doilies crocheted by Reen!
I didn't start blogging so that I could send or receive gifts, but it seems that blogging brings out a desire to share with others. The gifts we exchange are wonderful, but far more important to me are the friendships I have developed. I love the warm words of encouragement when I try something new, and I get excited about tatting, blinging, crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, etc. by reading about what all of my new friends are doing.
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
