Lovely Surprises

Some lush flowers arrived from Brett.
They bring colour and the promise of spring into our white, white winterscape.

Thank you son, with LOL.

Some trees arrived.
All the way from Kaite in Australia.
Knitted Trees, who'd a thought!
One snow covered tree, one summer pine and one rusty autumn maple perhaps.
This generous gift has me thinking of how many different ways there might be to make trees with stitch and fabric.
Thank you, Thank you, Kaite.
How you got my address is a mystery to me.
BTW Kaite is very busy nowadays making quilts and taking donations for Emerald, one of the devastated flood towns of Queensland.

  6. Happy Birthday, Penny!!!! I wish you much happiness, health, love and creativity.

  7. chuckle chuckle chuckle, and i think they may have landed on exactly the right day too.
    as it was you dear Penny who gave me the idea of knitted trees, and yes you probably don't remember that, so i thought it was only fitting for you to have a tiny forest.
    Gorgeous flowers from your son.
    toodles, kaite Poirot!

  8. Still wondering how I ever gave kaite that brilliant idea of knitting trees!
