A birthday card for a Japanese lady that I visit for a volunteer organisation. She is 90-something this week, so I decided to make something special for her.

Hi Gina,
That's just beautiful.
I've always wanted to try and do those type of cards but I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day for another project.

Thanks Patty - there is only a couple of hours work in this, once you have your floss and material at hand. That's why I like doing them!

Gina, this is very pretty and what a nice little gift it will make.

I worked in a nursing home many years ago. I was quite young, only about 19 then. I was the receptionist in the evenings and on weekends. Many of the residents would come to the reception area for some company. I very much enjoyed talking to them. Unfortunately, the owner didn't like the reception area being cluttered up with so many residents in wheel chairs and he eventually banned them from the reception area. Isn't that terrible! I eventually moved on to another job but for a few years, went back every other weekend to visit the residents. After a few years though, they started to pass away and eventually, there was no one there who knew me from when I worked there.

It's so nice to hear that you enjoy you're job so much. It takes a special person to do that type of work and I can see that you are that special person!
