A bookmark surprise....



THANK YOU...THANK YOU....THANK YOU, MOZE!!!! I love my bookmark, which is absolutely beautifully done not to mention the fact that I was so excited it was a butterfly! She also not only sent one book, but TWO!!! And as you can see, some tea from Israel which I will definately try in a new cup I bought specifically for tea that had it's own built in filter. And a really cool postcard in which she described where she lived in relation to the picture. This, by the way, is on my fridge right now. What a wonderful wonderful package, Moze! You are a sweetheart. I have not read either of these books and I am familiar with the author of the "Theory of Relativity." The other looks like a good mystery and being the "Court TV" addict that I am, as well as Ed, we should both enjoy that one.

This is really the first time I've participated in exchanges with yarns and books and such. I love this! It makes you realize how very thoughtful so many people are when they really don't even know you. When I was a little girl, I always wanted a penpal. One time when I was older, I actually found one in a crochet magazine. (this was before computers) I wrote this long letter and was so excited to hear back from her. But as luck would have it, I never did. I was so bummed. Everyone I meet online here and through the swaps are so nice and so worth waiting for all these years of being penpal-less (is that a word?) So, thank you to all of you, for being the best-est, fun-est, computer and swap pals ever!!!

Till Sunday (and don't forget Father's Day!).....tootles!

I had a similar experience, wanting and waiting for a penpal...
Now, I also feel the same with you, Lucy, all the years of waiting was worth it with online friends that I've met :D

Great package! I had a pen pal from France in Jr High that lasted through college. We lost touch a while back.. P.s. I'm already swaping some paperbacks... this is neat!
