Number one: A visit from a friend.
Number two: A lovely stitched pillow.
And number three: A lamp decorated with pretty crochet trim.
One of my very best friends arrived from Lebanon on Thursday, so in addition to fighting a cold this past week, I was cleaning and preparing for her visit.
Mona is a wonderful artist -- she can draw, paint, crochet, cross-stitch, sew. And most of the time she does this without patterns. I'm always amazed with the beautiful work she does and grateful that she bestows me with her wonderful handmade gifts.
Of course, more than anything, I value her friendship.
Today I am joining Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for A Favorite Thing.
Have a great day!
