I received a package in the mail from fellow blogger Shauna and loved it! A booklet from a talk the Gordon B. Hinckley give at a Relief Society General Conference. It's great. A photo album for the photos I never develop!! LOL, but it now gives me incentive to develop them. A book mark for the numerous books I am reading, I always need a bookmark. An a friendship card wishing me a happy birthday. Shauna, you are so sweet and kind. I can't wait to get back to Utah and maybe get to meet you in person. Thanks again for the gifts and your thoughtfulness.
Yesterday we received a box from my Mom and Dad. There were things in there for everyone, but the important stuff was for me!!! Two new blouses and hotpads that my Grandma made for me.
Grandma is VERY talented, she crochets, knits and sews. She is the one I get my talent for crocheting from. I'm so glad that that talent was passed down to me. I can't sew a straight line to save my life but I can crochet and cross stitch beautiful things.
We went to the markets in Maniago and Aviano on Monday and Tuesday so that I could get more yarn. I love yarn. There were awesome colors and beautiful textures. I can't wait to make them into beautiful things.
Thank you everyone for all of your sweet messages for a great day!! It sure makes being away from home so much easier!!!
