So pretty and EXACTLY what I needed!!

Have you ever been in a funk and had no idea how to get out?  Or, have things gone from bad to worse for you and you've been depressed and wondered how in the world things would turn out?  Well, lately, I think I've been experiencing both....(in due partly "probably" to my *still* missing sewing machine)...BUT....none the less, real!!  Then on top of it, the holidays are over and there is always something a bit sad about taking down the decorations....especially when you live in a state that only has "white" to look at outside.  Ugh!  And it's so cold that the chill just goes through you (even in the house).  Brrrrr!!!  And you feel fat, and your hair is ugly, and you have nothing to wear.....well, you know!  All of that!

BUT then,.......out of the blue.....something wonderful happens, and you can hardly believe it.  The mailman delivers a package to your door totally unexpected.  "For me??", you say.  So you RIP it open in wild abandon and low and behold, it's exactly what you need....and in the perfect colors.  And it's from a dear friend too (which makes it even better.)  And life is pretty good again....and you feel like it's your birthday...even just for an instant.  Well, that's what happened to me.......and isn't it pretty??  I just love it!!!  Thank you my friend!!!  It's exactly what I needed!


A gift from a dear friend
