I love surprises!
About 10 days ago I got a lovely surprise.
My friend Ginny ( a member of the Mason/Dixon
chapter of ATHA) sent me a box.
It arrived at the time that I was beginning to fee;
like a human being again.
The first thing I saw when I opened the box
was this cute tote bag.
The Mason/Dixon Chapter of ATHA is
preparing to participate in the
Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival
The first weekend in May.
Ginny'said that she had been very busy
hooking these darling little sheep and attaching
them to tote bags for the festival.
Wouldn't you like to take your newly
purchased wool home in this cute tote?
Included in the box was two large size woolen
skirts that she wanted me to give to my students.
These skirts are 100 percent wool and have lot of
material in them,
I have given them to my students who are
very grateful for the gift. Thanks Ginny!
In the package, for me, I'm not sharing!
was this large jar of trail mix. Nuts, raisins
and some chocolate covered goodies.
Since I am supposed to eat lots of things with potassium
I need no excuse to munch on this delightful
treat off and on all day!
Ginny also included a picture of this wonderful
oriental rug hooked by her mother, Mrs. Ruth Dietzel,
who passed away last year.
Mrs Dietzel was one of the first people in the
hooking world that I met when I started to hook.
I spent many a pleasant hour with her.
Needless to say, Mrs. Dietzel was a wonderful
rug hooker. Her oriental rugs were to
envy and drool over.
I thought you would enjoy seeing this rug.
Thanks again, Ginny for thinking of me. It's great to have friends like you.
Until we meet again, be safe and be happy.
