I've been meaning to get this posted, for a week now. When we returned from Colorado there was a box from Texas waiting for us. It was a gift from some dear friends who had spent a week with us on the farm last summer. Inside the box was a huge warm, afghan they had made from some wonderful soft green polar fleece (I LOVE polar fleece!). I've been trying to get a photo of the note that was included, but can't get a clear shot against the dark green paper. The note is as special as the gift itself. It is written in a 9yr old's hand and reads as follows:
Dear Ms. Jill,
Thank you so much for letting is stay at your farm last summer! We know it's cold and icy in Iowa, and we hope this blanket will make you have warm thoughts. It should also warm your toes. We made it long enough for Mr. Sean too! It was made with violin music over it! Have a warm winter!
Wishing you a warm winter,
and Donna ____
Mission acomplished girls...I am warmed from my heart down to my toes! Many, many thanks from frozen (but cozy) Iowa!
