There was a knock on the door and a nice lady handed me a parcel.
A parcel, I don't get parcels!! Well not very often anyway. When I saw my name on the front I started to get excited and then when I saw who it was from my heart went flitter flutter and I could hardly contain the excitement. Yes Katie, this parcel is from you! How come I didn't know anything about this? (Where's my friend Erin when I need her?) It really did come as such a surprise to receive a present all the way from the United States. Let me show you what my present, or should I say presents are ...
How beautiful is this? I love it. The colour is gorgeous and the fabric soft and feminine. It will be a favourite piece that I wear often.
And this....Isn't it just spectacular. The photo, pretty as it is, does not do it justice. There is so much knitting in this. I can't imagine how many stitches are in the ruffle section. The yarn is the softest, most beautiful yarn in the most divine colour. I love everything about it. So much time and effort went into this that I feel somewhat embarrassed. I can hardly wait for the cooler weather when I will wrap it around my shoulders and feel snug and comforted.
Thankyou is such a little word. It doesn't sound enough to match the joy in my heart. I am so thrilled and surprised with your gift. You have made my perfect day even more perfect than I could have dreamed possible.
Thankyou Katie, you are one special lady. Love you heaps.
