I think we all know what troubles Annemarie has been having – and how she was struggling to even be able to stitch at all late last year and early this year. Thankfully, she is recovering and has found renewed joy in her stitching. The point of the story is, Annemarie was my partner for Round 4 of the Fair and Square Exchange back in late 2007, and I was acutely aware of how awful she felt at not being able to stitch my squares for me – not a problem from my point of view, as squares can always be stitched whenever, but health is a much more precious commodity, and I just hoped she would quickly recover and feel her old self.
Well, clearly, she’s feeling much better, because I had a mystery package drop through my door yesterday, and boy was I ever delighted with its contents! Look at these simply stunning squares that Annemarie stitched for me:
They are a design by Christiane Dahlbeck and Annemarie couldn’t have chosen better – I absolutely LOVE them – I can’t wait to finish them into a special…well, I haven’t quite decided what yet, but definitely something special! She also included a bag of yummy loose tea and a sweet postcard – I’m going to have to ask her about the fairytale of the root children as that’s not one I’m familiar with. Thanks again Annemarie, I truly am delighted!
