Well, when I came home today and checked the mail there was a medium sized box that contained the following:
My cousin Marian made me a lovely crocheted shawl and a bonus neck scarf. It is so beautiful and it will be used daily when the weather turns cold again later this year (it's 90 outside right now). It's just the perfect size and I can wear it all over the place. The colors are really beautiful and the neck scarf will match my barn coat perfectly.
Thanks so much Cuz. I miss you and I look forward to seeing you later this year.
