A couple of weeks ago when I wasn’t feeling very well, I went to the mailbox to find an envelope which contained this wonderful hand-crocheted pot holder and a pretty card which said, “I’m sending this to you as I thought you’d like it”.  It was a complete surprise from one of my favorite bloggers, Darlene, in Columbus, Ohio.  It’s amazing how this thoughtful gift immediately brightened my spirits and made me feel 100% better.

At the time, my digital camera had gone out on me, but I got a brand-new one for Mother’s Day and wanted this to be the first picture I took.

Darlene has a warm, friendly blog with news of her crocheting, quilting, family, dog and cat here.
