Gifts

I had a birthday in November and wanted to show you a couple of very special gifts I received from my good friend, Maggy, who lives 4,000 miles away from me.    She spent several months living in Morocco with her husband on an extended holiday.  They sent me this beautiful little treasure…lovely, pale lilac, Moroccan slippers.   I was thrilled when they arrived.  Aren’t they the best?   So unusual…at least where I live they are!!!  The leather is so soft and pliable and the color so delicate.   Maggy sent me quite a few other lovely gifts as well…too many to show at this time.  I will never catch up on showing all the beautiful things I have received from my friends.   I love them ALL, Maggy, thank you again.

And as another special surprise she had French designer, Marie Therese St. Aubin, send me one of her patterns that I simply adore….It is called “L’Adieu.”

There is even a lovely note to me signed by Marie Therese herself.   I was delighted beyond anything when I opened the package.    It is so special I couldn’t believe it!

So then of course, I immediately ordered some delicate silk thread for this beautiful pattern.  It will surely take me quite some time to complete as there are never enough hours in the day.  And here I sit playing on my computer, posting, and surfing blogs!!!    I must remember…less computer…more sewing!!!

And last but NEVER least….I received the most wonderful gift from another friend, Nicole.   She also lives 4,000 miles away and is a lovely and talented artist.   Her designs are more and more beautiful each time I see one.   She created for me this lovely notebook cover for Christmas.  Thank you again, Nicole, I love the batiks and your art is exquisite!!

All of us have the most wonderful friends.  We must remember how fortunate we are.  I am grateful.   Thank you to ALL of my good friends out there.  I couldn’t live my life without your friendship and support.    Averyclaire
