Gifts form a friend

The interesting thing about the internet and blogging is that you get to 'meet' such interesting people from all over the world that you would never know otherwise. Such is the case with my friend Vivian in California.

Vivian is quite the knitter and an interesting person however one of the most interesting things about Vivian is the love and admiration she has for her mom, Lena. Her mom is also a knitter who has a passion for knitting for CIC.

Lena has some recent surgery right before her birthday so Vivian reached out into cyber world and asked if we could send a card to her mom. I decided to sent a card plus some yarn. It worked out better just to send an order from knitpicks directly to Lena once I figured out what it would end up costing to mail from CT to CA. The yarn and card arrived and I knew Lena would be happily knitting some wonderful vests for CIC.

Imagine my suprise to get a package that contained this
and these
Everything lovely made by Lena. I'll donate the vests in her name to CIC and throw in a couple pair of socks too. Isn't she just a treasure of a person. Vivian you are so lucky.

I guess she was showing you that she made very good use of your gift of yarn. How sweet, and I'm sure some lucky child will be thrilled to have those soft warm vests. I gather she does some bead work as well. My eyes would not take that I'm afraid. Very nice. :)

Diane, you made me blush :-) I'm glad you like everything. Yes, my mom does beading too. She learned it when we first came to US and she thought she could make some money doing crafts. Now she just has a huge bead stash.

How nice of her! The vests are so cute. I'm sure they'll make some children happy. The beadwork is lovely too.
