fortunate

FORTUNATE:favourable;favoured;felicitous;happy;lucky;prosperous; successful... I have been fortunate... Fortunate to have found such astonishing people in the most unlikely places... lucky to have made new friends... lucky that Nathalie found me when I was not looking, happy that Steffen wanted to trade... yes,I have been fortunate... Nathalie sent me this wonderful scarf. All the way from Belgium. Sent just because...just because I liked it... that is fortunate... Made from felted wool and woolen yarn,it is a unique,one of a kind,handmade creation. It is warm...warm from the fibers and warm from the heart with which it was given. It wraps and buttons,it makes me happy.. And I have been lucky,lucky enough to trade with Steffen for the most wonderful papers.Tags...notepads...calling cards... lucky that they are mine. Handmade and so delightful... almost to pretty to use. This is a surprise ,a project for a swap...I won't give anything away,except that well,isn't it fortunate that Erin and I are teamed up?...lucky again. And fortunate to have the most incredible readers...friends I am happy to have found.

Oh, wow! That scarf is just incredibly beautiful. Fortunate indeed! I have been wondering what you are crafting from that beautiful vanilla yarn... Lovely papers as well.

I am glad all turned up nicely, shot of cards looks very mysterious, and the scarf indeed is very beautiful... and yes I am also blessed to have made a new friend on the other side of the world... thanks for your friendship
