My friend Val tatted this beautiful piece and gave it to me for my birthday. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love it! She put it into the plastic pouch of a little purse-sized notebook. I could add the tatted piece as an embellishment to an embroidery, but for now I’m going to leave it in the notebook and think of Val every time I open it to jot down some notes or make a list.
Not only did she give me this lovely gift, she wrapped it in birthday paper instead of Christmas paper, bringing to mind memories of my dear Mother making sure all my birthday gifts came wrapped appropriately for my birthday at Christmas time.
