I went to this mailbox today and found this lovely quilted runner from my sister, Linda. Aren't the colors just beautiful? She had so generously made them for scrapbooking weekend a few weekends ago, and I was not able to be there. So in the mail, here I received one today anyway! Wasn't that nice of her?! Scrapbooking weekends with family are about so much more than scrapbooking. You get to talk, share what's going on in life, share old and new pictures (and maybe get them scrapped!), eat lots of unhealthy food - and what I've found is this. You walk away closer than you ever were before. I have a feeling that the scrapbooking and stamping weekends of today are similar to the quilting bees of the past.
This is a beautiful treasure on my dining room table. I have a feeling that my sisters and nieces that were able to attend that weekend store fabulous memories in their table runners!
I thought I'd share a few of the other gifts I received in the past 10 days. I am so grateful for family and friends ~
