A lovely surprise!

Sue here!

Last week I came across a blog - Cottage Garden Studio and fell in love with the drawings of the artist, Sarah, who owns the blog. She was holding a contest so I entered the contest and then became a follower. I hadn't even noticed until she told me, but I was her 100th follower and just for that, she emailed me and told me she was going to send me a treat! I swear, I was so excited (just ask the hubbie).

Yesterday, I received not one but TWO treats from her and was so touched by her generosity and her talent.

I got two drawings. One is of a unicorn - LOVE this picture:


And the other is of my baby Daisy! Sarah made the drawing from a picture of Daisy as a puppy (see the photo in the Daisy's birthday post below). I can't tell you how happy this made me!


I'm going to treasure these gifts forever. Thank you so much Sarah!

hi sue!
oh your post made my whole day!
you will get it, just keep practicing and have fun with it. i am teaching my sister how to crochet and i keep reminding her to be patient with herself. :)
it is so much fun and much easier than knitting.
i heard this book is very good when learning the stitches...
