Gift From A Friend

A friend of mine who lost his wife several years ago ask me today if I would like a basket of her craft things he just found while he was cleaning. Of course I said yes expecting a small basket. This is about 24"x 18". More like a small clothes basket. In it is yarn, felt, crochet thread, floss, and iron on transfers (a lot of them ). I am sure I forgot some of what is in the bottom.

This is the floss, 98 full or partial skeins. I was shocked when I sorted out the basket. Everything was just piled into it. The above picture is after it was sorted. What a gift. I will really thank him the next time I see him.

  3. What a nice gift AND I'm sure the lady would feel so much better knowing it was appreciated and used than if it had just sat around any longer OR been discarded!
