Gifts

Sue and Peter arrived with what seemed a suitcase full of gifts from their hometown in England. 
 
Not just for me, but my family as well
 
 
How incredibly thoughtful.
 
How do I thank a woman who took the time to knit a personalized vest...er,  jumpers, as they are called in the UK...for each of my grandsons. Sue even contacted my daughter on the sly to find out the initial of the baby boy in progress.
 

 
 
The greatest gift she brought across the pond?
 

 
Friendship.

and the best of these . . . friendship. And who says it can't happen through this device or another . . .

Sweet. What beautiful women, too.

It was my pleasure, how could I come empty handed. We actually call them slipovers or sweater vests. Jumpers/pullovers have sleeves, what you call a sweaters, you'd never think we speak the same language! (-:

On another note I really like my top, I don't normally wear patterns, it looks ok!!!
