I've Got Mail!

When I got home from work yesterday, there was a bulgy brown envelope (think plain brown wrapper!) on the chair by the mailbox. The bulgy parcel wouldn't fit inside, so the mailman left it on the chair, as he often does.

It was from my sweet bloggy friend Janet, way out there in Utah! She had sent me this exquisite mug rug that she'd made just for me! Will you look at it, please? Those little squares finish at 1/2" each and there are 81 of them. I've made so many mug rugs to give away, but never made one for me. And now I don't need to. Janet also included two bars of her herb-y soap which is just the kindest thing on my skin in the dryness of winter.

Thank you so much, my friend!
