This intenet blogging world is a special place for me. I have no readers that are insensitive or judgmental. All are considered friends. The death of my Mother brought home to me, once again, that you don’t have to meet someone face to face to care about them. I got this shawl from Margene shortly after Mom died. It was her “hug” from afar. I wanted to model the shawl for the post, but after realizing that I have the focus of a 3 year old and the memory of a 200 year old, if I was ever going to blog about it I had best just get a good shot of the shawl for you all. Maybe, just maybe, some day I can remember and get a shot modeling it for you. I have worn it already. I will wear it alot. It is the Ulmus shawl. I had admired it when Margene was working on it and based on her awesome rendition, I had purchased the pattern. Not a week later, this gorgeous shawl arrived on my doorstep with chocolate (and raspberry……orgasmic) and the best wild cherry green tea I have ever had. That, and her handmade card. I was and am overwhelmed by her generosity with her raw materials and her time.
The kindness of my dear friend touched me so deeply I cannot find words to describe my gratitude….not just for the shawl and gifts, but for her friendship. Thank you, Margene, from the bottom of my heart.
And, in honor of her (and, because I like it too;-), here’s Mr. Bob Dylan and a terrific old video of “Times They are a Changin'”.
Have a good one!!!!!!!!
