Long Overdue Thank You's

While in the States this summer, Sheila Rumney sent me the the loveliest handmade gifts.
A Bee Happy card.
And a FAITH art necklace.
Both are really so very special and I appreciate them so much.
Thank you, Sheila.
(I'm not the only one who likes the necklace but I managed to retrieve it before Jingles made a clean getaway.)
After we arrived back to Kuwait, a surprise package was delivered to me all the way from Australia.
Nicole at Dabbling All Day sent me another pay-it-forward gift which was totally unexpected.
Thank you so much Nicole!
Three very pretty knitted washcloths, chocolate and a sweet card.
Next thing I know, I receive an envelope from Patty at Patty's Pretty Things filled with the sweetest handmade cards.  They really are so lovely.
Thanks Patty!
 And then, just the other day, I received not one, but two packages from the States.
First, Sharon at From My Front Porch sent me the most beautiful cross-stitched towel.
As a cross-stitcher, I know the work that went into making it.
I am so grateful for your sweet gift Sharon!
 And last but not least are gifts from Jan.
I love the card which is made from a watercolor image done by a local artist.
That same artist, Nora Larimer, also painted the trivet with Colorado Columbine.
A scarf, bracelet and earrings (made by a friend of Jan's with coated copper and fresh water bronze pearls).
And the sweetest felt ornament made by Jan herself.
They are all so beautiful and I love them so much!
Jan and I were supposed to meet in Colorado this summer but it just didn't work out.
Maybe next year.
You can find Jan at A Journey.
Please visit all these lovely ladies when you have a moment.
Blog friends really are so kind and generous! 
Once again, I must apologize for my absence from blogging.
I do miss visiting all of you.  I just wanted to pop in for a quick hello.  We leave in the wee hours of the morning on another adventure.  Will be back in a week's time.
Hope all is well where you are!
Best wishes and blessings,

Hello! Talk about long overdue ... I cannot thank you enough for the delight that my mailbox held several months ago. I had meant to write then to tell you of my treasured cloths you sent. I love them, cherish them and so taken that you thought of me. You made me feel special. I had meant to write right then, I have returned to work and am so busy that I completely overlooked thanking you, please forgive me! Today I came on as I can't locate my recipe from you for a wonderful vegeterian soup with lentils and salsa, etc. and I saw this post and realized that I too had a much more overdue thanks. I missing the blogging world and hope to get to it again in time but right now the time is very limited. Know that you are often in my thoughts. Best and blessings always to you and your family ...

How wonderful you got all those lovely gifts.

I'm still enjoying your beautiful pink and white "dollhouse comforter and matching pink and white rug!" Ha! You didn't intend them for those purposes but they sure worked for me.

Now you are on another adventure! Where are you off to? Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back! Susan

Wow! You are one popular lady! I sent you something too but it looks like you didn't get it...yet? If you don't let me know and I will send you another. I addressed it from the envelope I had from you...maybe it will show up still but it was a while ago. It was like Christmas at your house! For you anyway! LOL! What wonderful blogging friends we all are blessed with!
