Three Packages!

I love mail. It almost makes me sad that we no longer write letters because I love mail. After being gone for a whole week we came home to three packages. Three Packages! SQUEEEEEE!!!

The first package contained our airline tickets to Ethiopia! Hurrah!

The second package I got contained gifts from my dear friend Naomi. The most perfect baby sweater on the planet!

Naomi is a knitting genius and librarian. She has been working on embedding words and symbols into knitting patterns. Here is the link to her blog where she discusses how she does it. . She is one smart cookie. She knitted me a cowl where she used Davy’s name as the pattern. Amazingly enough it looks like hearts and houses. It’s really really beautiful.

Then I opened the box from my friend Juline! Holy Canoli a quilt! Since I am such a crafting nerd- all handmade gifts give me the chills. Juline is a meticulous crafter and the work that she did on this quilt really shows. I LOVE it. The piece of fabric she used on the back has an image of the world map. She embroidered a heart of Ethiopia, North Carolina (where we met) and Oregon. Here are a million photos of the quilt.

I am so touched by these amazing gifts, the generosity of my friends and the love that they are showering on us and wee Davy.
