THE YEARS GO BY

 
 
True friendship is a knot tied by Angels.

Here we are with May gone and now its June. June will bring my fifth bloganniversary...  I have just been looking back over my all past postings, lots of memories there mostly good ones but a few sad ones when I come to something Paul and I did together. I am ever grateful for the friendship and support of my many blogging friends. You continue to leave messages for me even when I don't get to reply to them all, your blogs are my morning reading first up each day as .I eat my bowl of cereal sitting at the computer catching up with everyone's news. 
 
 To celebrate ...five years are certainly worth celebrating, No I am not having a give away I have decided instead to send out five mystery parcels each will be a small embroidered item  there are five Mondays in June so watch my blog each Monday I will announce  to whom I am sent a mystery parcel to. And to make it only five is very hard so I am coming up with some different reasons for each gift. Looking at my list of those who share with me  20 would be a better number, however to be practical I must keep it to five

 
Week one and today is Monday..( drum roll please) the first mystery parcel is to be  sent to the person who left the first comment ever on my blog, way back 5 years ago and that was  Beaj in Canada.  Your little parcel will be on its way to you when the post office opens tomorrow, it is a holiday Monday here in NZ and. I hope your little parcel does not take too long to travel across the seas to you.
 
I have no stitching to share at the moment I have had a busy few weeks as we prepared to celebrate our Church's 150 Years Anniversary, we had a wonderful day yesterday bright and sunny which added to the welcome, the service started with the bagpipes together the pipe organ in the tune Amazing Grace, and following the service we sat down to  share together a meal and time to recall the past. I now look forward to a quiet week with lots of stitching.
 
Back in a weeks time, to share my stitching and to tell of the next mystery parcel.

Hi Lee,
Congratulations on your 5th. Anniversary.
On a sunny day..one of very few we have had so far I also got to enjoy a wonderful surprise in the
mail today.
It was such a treat to receive that gorgeous book you made for me. I love it and marvel at how your stitching and finishing is just so beautifully done. The booklet included has a few ideas I will have to try.
Thanks again...nice to hear your feeling better.
