This thank you note should have been posted a long time ago. Better late than never, I guess.
My friend, Melissa, who lives in that beautiful country of New Zealand sent me a pink scarf that she crocheted...or maybe knitted. This shows my total ignorance about needlework. Regardless if it's crocheted or knitted, it is beautiful.
Here's the loot.
Complete with chocolate !
Oops! Where's the chocolate, Melissa?
It's always so exciting to receive a package with the words "International Air."
A beautiful card: Glendhu Bay...The shore of Lake Wanaka, in autumn.
Melissa's note wishing me a Happy Birthday
I was so impressed that a fellow blogger remembered my birthday. Especially since AnodeMan forgot it this year.
My new pink scarf hand-crafted by Melissa
Button Button Who Has the Button?
I have problems just sewing on one button. I can't imagine trying to get these tiny little pink buttons sewn on so that they design the Breast Cancer logo.
What a special gift ! Especially because it was handmade by you. Especially because you remembered my birthday without being "prompted." Especially because of what the pink and the buttons represent. Especially because you included chocolate.
I have visited your city twice. It is beautiful along with the people we met there. You can bet that if we ever return, we will plan to meet each other in person.
My little friend that I bought while visiting New Zealand says, Thank You.
