Birthday Love, East-Coast Style
Sweet Basil has really outdone herself. I was completely speechless and in tears when I opened my gift from her when I arrived home last week. It was a hand-made needle case and some yummy Korean and Japanese snacks.
She wrote, "I had one rule making the knitting needles case - that was to use only the items that I already have." It turns out that many of the materials were recycled from thrifting and crafting trips we've taken over the years. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT and I really love that she stitched together so many of our shopping adventures into one beautiful, gorgeous piece.
The quilting classes she's taken have really paid off, as you can see in this detail:
I am so very fortunate to have such a caring and thoughtful friend. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Sweet Basil.
I do have one question. What's up with sending me an ass-coffee cookie?
