Sometimes you meet the nicest people you’ve never even met

November 18, 2010 | My Jottings

Not long ago I received a gift in the mail from one of the nicest people I’ve never met. Her name is Patty, and she’s a customer of my daughter Sharon’s. For those who might not know, Sharon hand dyes yarn and sells it online. You can take a look at her website here.

I read Sharon’s blog and occasionally leave a comment there, signing my name as the “Yarnista’s Mama.”  Patty sent me this beautiful tote bag with the logo from Sharon’s business perfectly embroidered on it, along with my title. 🙂  I was absolutely thrilled! What a personal, thoughtful gift. You can click on the photo to enlarge it if you like.

Patty and I have chatted by email about our grandchildren, and she has been so generous and complimentary about Three Irish Girls yarn. Isn’t this the neatest tote?  I’ve been using it every Tuesday morning when I go to CBS.

Thank you Patty!

I think it’s amazing how through the internet, you can meet the nicest people you’ve have never even met…
