Good surprises are just that: good. And getting an unexpected package in the mail is more than a good surprise - it's great.
I could go on and on about Sarah. I am just going to say she rocks. She sent the girls and I some lovely handmade items as a thank you. A thank you for a thank you gift I sent her this summer. She wasn't supposed to do that. But she did. Isn't she nice?
She made me this t-shirt with toadstools. Eeeeee! I love it! It is the PERFECT shade of green and fits me wonderfully. It will be in heavy rotation. I know this. I have already worn it. Twice.
She made the girls an apron. I wish it were my size! It is beautifully made with gorgeous details - the buttoned ties, appliqued AND freezer paper stenciled toadstools (just like on my shirt), lime green stitching. (More photos here.) The girls love it and have agreed to share. Jane wore it on Saturday while we made zucchini bread. Kate gets her turn later today when we make cookies. They were entirely reasonable about the sharing part, too. Another good surprise! They must be growing up.
Look at how happy my kitchen pegs look now.
Thank you Sarah. Thank you so much.
