I got some gifts this week!

This was such a busy and sad week but happy too!  All in stride, right people?  

First Wendy left.  I did not know her very well but she was truly a kind soul.  Lovely woman.  At her surprise from the Tuesday group; she did not expect us but she had made a little sumpin' sumpin' for each one of us!

She said she remembered I said something about living here permanently (it's a seriously transient society here) and how I never received anything.  It's one of my gripes.  I do feel that I am always giving because I do and so many people come and go!  So, she must have made it a point and decided to make us all, not just me, a gift when she left, which was inevitable!

Well, last Tuesday, I went to Jo's and Corinne handed me this lovely little package!  I saw the intricate paper craft.  Then I saw the SELVAGE!  I was so excited!  Inside, I saw a block and a pattern for a Friendship Scrap Block.  So, nice!

This is the block.  It's so pretty!  I think those are Kaffe Fasset background anyway.

Then my friend Jean left Oman to go back to the UK.  I will miss her immensely.  Lovely, lovely woman.  This was taken outside our venue of the last Guild meeting last Saturday.  Safe travels mon amie!

Then my daughter comes home last night and brings me this loot!  She went to Sri Lanka for one week with the school.  It was a hard trip.  She got sick.  Stayed sick the whole week.  Poor thing.

 So that was my creative week, sort of.  I made mini quilt I need to blog about....

Hugs! I hope your daughter is back to her normal, healthy self.

It's always sad to say goodbye to friends. But heck, this world gets smaller by the minute with so much at our fingertips.
