Beautiful gifts from dear friends.

 Today I received a parcel in the post from my friend Linda.  I have never had hand knitted socks before and these are gorgeous,  warm and comfortable.   Linda and I have been friends for several years although we have only spent time together on two occasions.  Our love of textiles, photography and the countryside underpins our friendship and I will treasure these socks. 

Yesterday I also received a gift from a friend.  Norma and her husband John are preparing to move home and when we caught up on Sunday Norma mentioned that there were a few things that she had put aside for me - would I like to pick them up before they move?    There were threads and needle and scissors and a very old book.  The book had been passed down to Norma from her mother and is very old. 

I am looking forward to reading this book and it will be passed down to someone who will appreciate and love it.

Do you have any old needlework books that you treasure?
