From the Bottom of my heart

The fingerless gloves Sue made me from Tess’ wool

How did I feel when I opened the box that Sue sent and saw the gloves she made me from Tess’ wool?   Well, you know that expression “I thank you from the bottom of my heart”, for the first time in my life I understood what that means.  No that’s wrong, I’m still not sure what it means, but I know how it feels.  It’s deep and bottom heavy, like the crescent moon cradled on it’s back right in the center of my chest.  I smile every time I think of the beautiful soft gray of Tess’ wool, hugging my hands.

Thank you Sue, from the bottom of my heart.

  1. What a beautiful and kindhearted thing to do Maria. I’m so glad you have those handwarmers and I know how sweetly warm they will be. A little love given back to you for all you give so freely.

  2. Didn’t see this post until this morning. I’m touched! The gloves look great – I knew they would. Your work is everywhere that I am – in my office (2 potholders), at home (quilt, potholder, pillow) – even with Roger’s granddaughter (potholder). Your work makes me smile every day. I wanted to do something for you that will – I hope – make you smile,think warm thoughts of Tess, and allow you to recall her amazing fleece. Later in December, when I have some time off from work, I’ll bne working on some “Tess accessories” for Roger and me. Her wool is so much fun to work with. I may combine some with some spun fleece from Socks that I purchased last year and see what happens. So glad you’re enjoying the mitts!

    1. They do make me smile and think of Tess Sue. Thank you again and I’m glad you and Roger will be wearing Tess’ and Socks wool too. You know the two of them were always sticking together. I think Socks may even be Tess’ lamb.
