Thanks again for the kind birthday wishes and all the supportive and thoughtful comments you left yesterday. I’m all verklempt, I tell you. But enough about that, let’s talk about my birthday presents. Specifically, my birthday presents from my two nearest and dearest friends, Lois and Sharon. The reason these presents are so special? They made them. Yup. They made me stuff.
My present from Lois was this fabulous quilted topper for my kitchen table. She actually made it and gave it to me this past summer when I got new dishes. It matches the dishes perfectly and really looks beautiful on the table.
My present from Sharon was this awesome hand knit scarf. It’s the Oh, Canada pattern, downsized to one repeat, and the yarn is Judy’s sock yarn. It’s beautiful and I love the fact that Sharon took the time to knit it for me.
Aren’t those the best presents ever? Sometimes we don’t feel appreciated when we give someone a hand made gift but in this case Lois and Sharon know that I adore these gifts and I adore them, too. Good friends who give good presents definitely make for good birthdays!
