I came home from work today to find a small packet poking out of my front fence, where the postman had left it near my letter box. First I thought it was some missing items I had ordered months ago, then I looked at the sender's details and discovered it was from my dear stitching/blogging friend, Melissa in Canada! Wow, what a surprise. She's remembered that it's my birthday this month and sent me a small gift to mark the occasion.
Inside was a gorgeous card with a cat on the front (she knows I love cats) and a selection of pink and green silk threads (she also knows I like pink and green together). I love them and what a thoughtful gesture from her.
The threads are from a name called Hand Dyed Fibers which I haven't heard of before. The greens are a silk perle #8 and the pinks are a 6 stranded silk.
Thank you so much, Melissa! You're very thoughtful and they're a beautiful gift. So nice to receive something when you're not expecting it. You made my day!
