When I was one, I had just begun,
When I was two, I was nearly new.
When I was three, I was hardly me.
When I was four, I was not much more.....
A.A. Milne

 As some of my followers are aware, my morning starts with breakfast at the computer, as I eat my cereal I am catching up on everyone's news, you all make my day start on a good note. Yes I have adapted to waking up to face the day with just the cat to say good morning too,

 and so to sit and read all the new postings is like starting the day in the  company of friends.
 This week I thought I would like to send the mystery parcel to some one whose blog postings I enjoy every morning. Oh how I wish I could send something to  you all but that's not possible so one it is,
Most of the blogs I follow belong to embroiderers, our stitching is an interest we share, I love seeing photos of your gardens, flowers having always been part of my life and as is my interest in birds.

 So its most appropriate that the blog I have chosen is Garden Grumbles,  Cross stitch Fumbles and Birding Bumbles. Have you visited Beth's blog she posts everyday the most wonderful  photos of birds and other visitor's to her garden along with flowers she sees on her walks and yes she has her stitching as well  here is a link if you have not found her blog yet. I am off now to visit her blog and tell her a small mystery gift will be on its way to her.
Happy stitching everyone.

Lee -
I am speechless with delight! Your package arrived today. Thank you so much for the kind and thoughtful letter. I continue to be amazed at how my silly little blog posts touch people in different ways - people from all over the world. It still stuns - and inspires me. After living in the country my entire life, I'd certainly miss my birds and critters if I lived in the city center as you do. I expect that you have opportunity to visit your wonderful countryside and enjoy all that it has to offer.

Your Bellbird ornaments is fabulous. What eye problems I must ask as you stitched on a very high count of linen - such tiny fine delicate stitches and the details - the beak, the eye, the branch are so fine and true.

Thank you so very much for sharing this special gift with me. I am honored.
