Thank you so much for attending
the Baby Shower for Ginny last
week, it was a joy to have all
of you here.

I have a few gifts to distribute
and with the help of my husband

1. Debrorah [A Delightful Glow]
a pattern of your choice from Ravelry
up to $12.00 donated by Karen.
Karen is Swanski on Ravelry so you
can send her a message.

2. Tania [ Hedgrerow Harvest] a pattern
of your choice from Ravelry up to $12.00.
I am 1tims on Ravelry so just let me know.

3. Donna [Knit1Spin2] I have a skein of
yarn for you if you wouldn't mind messaging
me your address.

On my Kindle is a book I highly recommend,

the setting and time frame [England during
WWII] are the same. This is my first time
reading anything by Susan Messiner, but it
won't be my last.
