big hearts

 yesterday's mail
 contained this 
from carol j blinn, her binding, my pictures 
of hiroko karuno at the japanese paper place last fall
 and this
 from my now worry free friend
 i looked at these fingers and said to myself: "those aren't aimee's!"
 the hooligans would say, "DUH"
 and she used up all the usable scraps of my papers from her models
 in a most 
 frugal and intelligent 
way.
having book, paper, and fiber friends is always a gift.
you two rescued a "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day" for me. 
thank you.

i wouldn't say worry free yet...more like, in worry rehab! you are ALWAYS welcome. carol's gift is amazing! i am glad those things arrived in your mailbox to battle your day. big, big hugs.

how good to have such tangible hugs arrive on such a day, and i just love the crazy lokta paper quilt. a virtual hug to you, k.

I think the kids (maybe of all ages) have holiday hang-over. Big Sigh. Love the paper. Going to go call Australia now.

I like how life delivers you lovely things when you need them. Not always, but how special is it when it does?!? What a wonderful surprise and gifts to receive. Go well.
