My Christmas Bonus

Betty's Tidings of Joy doily
Marie's beautiful doily

A while back, I did a post on Elizabeth Hiddleson, and how touched I was by a letter she wrote to her customers. In essence, it said something like "I publish my crochet designs to make a living, but it makes me feel wonderful to know that my designs are bringing happiness to you as well."
I have received several lovely emails recently, saying that many of you are making some of my designs as Christmas gifts. I cannot tell you how happy that makes me!
Betty wrote about her "Tidings of Joy" doily:
"I made this for an elderly lady that loves doilies. It brought tears to her eyes. I've never had a gift go over so well."
Thank you, Betty, reading your email brought tears to my eyes!
Marie made her doily as a gift for her daughter. She changed the design by omitting some of the poinsettias, which is what I hope everyone will feel free to do. Personallize them, and make them your own!
I put a lot of love into each one of my designs, and I hope it always shines through. I feel blessed to be able to crochet full time now, and I appreciate all of your support. Thank you all, for making it possible for me to do what I love!

Everyone did such a fine job. Your designs are so beautiful and I am constantly on the look-out for the hard-to-find ones.

Too bad I'm such a sloppy crocheter, & this wouldn't look as nice if made by me...
