From my manager I received this lovely quilted table piece. All the stitching is done with variegated thread and the colours are scrumptious!
|Excuse the messy desk...|
She also gave me a fantastic handmade button necklace.
|She had a very good guess as to what my favourite colour is.|
One of my fellow volunteers and craft groupers gave me a stitching themed card.
And also a poppy she had knitted herself.
One of the ladies at the craft group whom I don't really know, upon learning that I was leaving, whipped up this cute little bunny.
She said she makes these and sends them all over the world. Now she will also have one in the Netherlands.
I'm going to miss all the ladies at the craft group, even though I did not know them particularly well, as it was such a lovely and cosy and (I'll shall have to use a Dutch word here, as there is no real English equivalent) "gezellig" couple of hours a fortnight, and it made me feel quite welcome in a town where I had felt quite isolated.
