A Special Gift

Last year I met Sylvia through Maree On My Verandah's FQ birthday swap. I helped her out when she was short on a particular fabric for a quilt; I didn't want anything in return, I was just so happy that I could help her - a great feeling!
Through a few emails Sylvia learnt that I didn't replace my wallet when it needed replacing; and that I was carrying my cards (and notes!) wrapped in a hair elastic in my pocket or my bag. Now while that may sound terrible to some, it actually made it quite compact and easy to access what I needed to! LOL
Just before Christmas this beautiful gift from Sylvia arrived in the mail FOR ME!
Such a surprise, such a lovely beautiful surprise! Sylvia made me this to keep my cards in.
My face has a smile and I am overwhelmed with emotion - Sylvia thought about me, she made me a special gift and she bestowed it upon me.
Can't get much better than that!
What an angel!

I can't give you the link to Sylvia's blog because all my bookmarks have dissapeared into cyberspace with the recent computer updating and altering dh has been doing....
I have emailed Sylvia for her blog.
