It was just an ordinary day until my husband came in from the mailbox and said: "Here you might be interested in this"!

Here was this cheerful envelope, from a person I did not recognize, and when I opened it I was blown away! There was the most precious Flower Pin made out of pieces of sweaters in my favorite colors, and a delightful letter from my "new" blog friend Susan Gannon.

I immediately put in on my sweater to wear to my art league meeting that night. It was a hit Susan!. I tried to send her a e-mail twice but it wouldn't go thru so sent a card and told her I would sure show it off on my next post It made me feel so loved! Thank you again Susan!

Oh Wow! Susan really made a pin that was "spot on" for you! You look great in your new pin and your cute red shoes!
Making new friends through blogging is so much fun.
Have a great day, Marlynne!

The flower pin is truly a lovely gift-- looks so pretty on your sweater!! Love that it was made from an old sweater-- new life for the wool in such a beautiful way!
