NEW CAPRA TREASURE!
New Capra Blanket treasure has washed ashore!
I can't describe how wonderful it makes me feel when a package shows up on my desk!
I have set an arbitrary date of OCTOBER 1, 2011 to actually start work on the blanket.
But I have a feeling that I'll be adding to the energy for a long time to come.
This week's treasure is from:
Marigold (the goat) and goatmother Maryanne from Sequim, WA
It is the actual hem of the goatmother's nightgown!
Marigold writes: "She is short and has to cut off many things."
Now, I ask you.....how special is that?!
I hope this means I can share in her dreams.
The second are two crochet doilies and hankies from two different grandmothers from
Paula of Liverpool, NY
The handmade doilies are by Grandma Jenny
and the flower hankies are from Grandma Laura.
Remember when everyone had a hankie....? :)
Paula also gifted me with something that made both of us cry.
She left on my desk an actual goat bell from Switzerland that she purchased 30 years ago.
She told me how it had been "waiting for a goat."
Needless to say, I can't even begin to describe how touched I am at the gesture.
Darla will be proud to wear this magical bell come Yuletide.
I become more and more humbled each time someone shares.
Darla may wear the blanket.....but I am wrapped in love.............
Thank you my friends......so, so much.........
