Kirby came round yesterday to work on her uni project - I think maybe she gets peace and quiet here. While we were having lunch, the postman came with a box and I could see from the return address that it had come from Yuko
in Japan and I was very suprised as I was not expecting anything from her. I put the box to one side (such patience) whilst I finished my lunch. Kirby was most intrigued with the box and said she wondered what was inside so I told her she could open it. She didn't need telling twice and when she opened it she found not only a package addressed to me but one for her too! Her face lit up and even more so when she saw that Yuko had sent to her a beautiful cami knitted by her dear sweet mum especially for Kirby. She put it on immediately - a perfect fit and said she can't wait to show it off to all her friends. It matches her knitted socks too! Thank you to Yuko and her much talented mum for such a thoughtful gift. Yuko obviously gets both her talent and her kind heart from her mum.
And now to my package! Yuko tells me she has been sorting out her stash and decided to share some with her friends and knowing that blue is my favourite colour she put together a 'blue' package for me. It certainly didn't make me feel blue; such pretty fabric and trims - thank you Yuko for your kindness.
I have put some time into finishing some exchange pieces and have one more to stitch and finish. These will be my last exchanges for a while as I am due to have surgery for mutiple trigger finger on my right hand sometime this year and I would not want to sign up for exchanges and be unable to fulfill my commitments. As I have already had the same surgery on my left hand in 2007, I know that I will be unable to stitch for at least 6-8 weeks so I will stock up with books and dvds to keep me amused. I hope it won't be too long before I can resume exchanging as I enjoy choosing something to stitch for my partner and putting together a goodie package too.
Thanks for visiting
