Surprise Spoons

I am SO very blessed with good friends.  I realize many people think it is odd that I call my friends in the box (internet friends) real friends…… just because I never met them in person.  But when you share so many experiences and day to day events, they truly become friends.  Whether sharing on a favorite website (MQR), on blogs, thru email, by phone, or any mix of those…. I have come to know and care about lots of people that I consider friends.

So today I got an unexpected surprise from one of those friends.  A package came today from Andi, another longarm quilter from South Dakota.  It was wrapped in pretty gift paper, with a card that I would guess she made.  She is so very talented.  Andi wrote the nicest note in the card about my blog, me, and why she sent this to me.

I am not someone who cries often.  But I was SO touched by Andi’s kindness, that I cried when saw the bag.  It is the most thoughtful and appropriate gift Andi.  Thank you so very much my friend.

It rained last nite.  And alot of the day today.  Rain/snow mix tonite.  Colder temps the next few days.  So the contractor wont start  the garage until next Wednesday.  Maybe.  I am not holding my breath.  How can anyone predict the weather?  The weather man surely cant!

    I LOVE that! It is so appropriate …… and so very thoughtful. I want to thank Andi, too …… for making our friend Gayle cry. I understand how moved she was ( and is ! ) by the bag. Bless you Andi.

    Enjoy your spoons Gayle. I know what you mean about our “box” friends. I have several friends, you included, that I have never meet but I surely do consider them as my friends.

    That is so sweet! I couldn’t tell what the fabric was until I made the picture bigger and when I did…tears sprung to my eyes as well. That was a very thoughtful gift!

    As soon as I saw it I thought of you, Gayle, and just had to get you one! I just wish I had real ‘spoons’ I could give you when you needed them.

    You do know you’re going to end up with a spoon collection now, don’t you? That spoon chicken was just too cute!
