This was my personalized christmas gift from her this year.
A wooden plaque - it shows me so well
Sitting in my comfy chair, knitting, notice I am wearing slippers - I am indeed comfy. She even got my hoop earrings - great detail
With cupboards full of my dishes
And a quilt - of course a quilt - she knows me so well.
Julee and I went to grade school together for 5th, 6th and 7th grades in Sitka, Alaska - until her Coast Guard father was transferred.
We got back in contact with each other through facebook - she recognized my name in a comment to another classmate on facebook, because she remembered that my mother had been the Girl Scout leader when she was in Girl Scouts. We finally met for lunch one day a couple years ago and haven't stopped talking since. (No comments from Tony and Don needed)
We get together every week or so, to stitch and talk and drink tea and eat donuts - what better kind of friend could you have?
Julee paints birds, butterflies and faces - well, most anything that catches her fancy, she makes dolls and does embroidery. She has an etsy shop so you can see her wonderful work - and pick a few favorites to buy.
My gift hangs now in my studio - reminding me of a thoughtful friend.
