In the past few weeks I've received a couple of just-because presents. Today I had lunch with a friend I hadn't, due to Life Happening, seen since before Christmas. At the end of lunch and an exchange of stuff - books we'd read and were passing on, etc., - she casually mentioned that she had something else she wanted to give me. It was in her car.
So as we left the restaurant, we walked over to her car and she took out a copy of La Dentelliere that she had purchased while traveling in France. It seemed appropriate since she was the one responsible for getting me started making lace. :)
I think I have a nice spot for it. Just need to wait for Doug to get home to put a nail in the wall to hang it from.
