I got the loveliest mail yesterday but I wanted it to have a whole blog entry of its own, so saved the photo for today. This is a gift from Becky. I knew it was coming but it's so much nicer in real life than in a photo. It's beautifully stitched and finished. Thank you Becky! I really love it! It's going to cheer me up while I proofread a 1104 page reference book today!
And while I think about it, Becky has had some bad experiences recently with nasty emails. There are some wonderful people out there, and she is one of them. I'd say that even if she hadn't sent me a gift. If whoever is sending nasty emails reads this - if you can't say something nice, why say anything?
