Thank You Nancy!
A package arrives in the mail. Who is it for?
Ahhh. Henny Penny of course!
Henny Penny sets the package down in the grass and slowly, almost reverently starts to undo the raffia ribbon.
As she undoes the tape trying not to harm what is inside, she begins guessing. What is it?
Not knowing if it is fragile or breakable she takes great care. Her Mum knows....... but doesn't say a word as she watches what unfolds.
A small intake of breath, "I know what this is"! And then, a smile.
"It's a purse"! I explain to Henny Penny where the purse came from. Nancy in Montana sent it to Henny Penny after I'd commented on her blog and said that Henny Penny would go 'gaga' over the purse she'd made. The blog world is full of wonderful people.
This purse is exquisite. The felt flowers all hand sewn. Each stitch perfection. A certain little girl, when I checked on her sleeping last night.........had her new pink purse in bed with her.........
Thank you Nancy. I pray you have sunshine and smiles in your heart for that is the gift you gave Henny Penny and me.
P.S. Here is a link to Nancy's blog. Be prepared to see all sorts of warm yumminess when you see what this talented lady does with applique and felt and quilts and........ a whole ton of wildlife right in her backyard. Amazing. Breathtakingly amazing. All of it. Almost as amazing as this ladies huge heart. Again, thank you Nancy!!
