I just brought in today's mail, and look what I found--a wonderful surprise "thank you" gift from zkatom on Craftster! She is one of the participants in the recent Fabric Basket Swap, to whom I sent heart-shaped pincushions as my entry in the Random Acts of Crafty Kindness challenge.
It's a beautiful, crocheted dishcloth!
She used my favorite colors, and incorporated my favorite symbol, a heart (on Craftster I go by the name "Leslieshappyheart")!
She also sent a note on a card with a hand-stamped image of a cat's face (cats are another favorite of mine). One of my kitties needed to check it out!
Thank you so much, Shannon, this was a lovely and uplifting surprise! I appreciate the time you put into it, the attention to including my "likes", and the beautiful crochet stitches . I think I will use it on the kitchen table as a hot pad so I can see and enjoy it frequently.
