I received the nicest surprise in the mail today from my online friend Dolores. Dolores is the customer I've talked about in previous posts whom I've been making penny rugs for. We met through Etsy. We are up to something like 269 messages on Etsy!! Most are regarding the penny rugs but we've also been sharing some personal things about ourselves, and getting to know each other.
Her letter said that she'd been to visit a local Country shoppe and while looking at all the wonderful things they had, thought of me and wanted to get me something to show her appreciation for 'putting my heart and soul' into 'our' penny rug projects and she wanted to let me know how much joy I've given her with my handcrafted items.
